Today, many are looking at old pictures to reconstruct synagogues that were destroyed during the Holocaust, such as in Poland, Ukraine, and Hungary.

Restoration and design are taking the forms of color choices, elaborate decorations, precious metals and designs of sanctuaries.

According to Oberman [CEO of Lavi Furniture Industries], "The restoration work is being conducted in coordination with historians and experts in photo restoration. Recently, a synagogue in Toronto was restored based on a synagogue in Jaslo, Poland, at a cost of $15 million. The work involved wood carvings and gold-coated leaves."
