Welcome to lifelong learning.

HOME: LENS ON ISRAEL

In a photographic tour celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday, explore the multitude of communities—and worlds—that dwell side by side within Israel’s meager 8,000 square miles, just the size of New Jersey.

Once a month for seven months, our exhibition will rotate through the diversity that is Israel, from the ultramodern to the ancient, the religious to the secular and the new generation to the survivors of Jewish triumph and tragedy:

ELDERLY JEWS AND HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS IN DIMONA APRIL 25 – MAY 23

BEDOUIN AND ARAB ISRAELI COMMUNITIES IN THE NEGEV MAY 27 – JUNE 24

CHILDREN IN A SOUTHERN DEVELOPMENT TOWN OF KIRYAT GAT JUNE 27 – JULY 25

THE ULTRA-ORTHODOX OF BNEI BRAK JULY 29 – AUGUST 26

THE STORIED DRUZE VILLAGE OF YANUH-JAT AUGUST 29 – SEPTEMBER 26

THE DISABLED RECEIVING CUTTING-EDGE CARE IN HAIFA SEPTEMBER 30 – OCTOBER 24

MOROCCAN JEWS OUTSIDE HAIFA OCTOBER 28 – NOVEMBER 21…

YOUR PASSPORT TO ISRAEL… AND PERHAPS A FREE TRIP!

Pick up your Passport to the Jewish World during your first visit to the exhibition, then get a new stamp every month as the photographic themes change. By filling your passport with all seven stamps, you’ll not only enjoy a visual journey across the breadth of Israel, but you’ll be entered to win the ultimate extension of our exhibition, a free trip, including a round-trip coach flight from NYC and a five-night hotel stay in Tel Aviv.

The Bernard Museum of Judaica at Temple Emanu-El has partnered with the American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) for this exhibition, partially underwritten by Elizabeth and William Kahane.

Exhibition Begins April 25
