Brad Erickson, a graduate student in the department of Religious Studies, spent last summer creating three-dimensional models of several ancient synagogues in Israel. The project includes a 3D model of the synagogues and a high-detail image of each synagogue’s mosaic floor. Erickson’s summer work was made possible in part by a $5,000 grant from the Center’s Jack O. Spies and Family Jewish Studies Fund and the Kittner Endowment.
