JDC’s HOME: Lens on Israel, a photography exhibit from Temple Emanu-El’s Bernard Museum of Judaica & Streicker Center in New York, showcases the work of photographers who have documented the diverse communities that live side-by-side in Israel today, and the work of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).

The exhibit follows the journey of 11 photographers across Israel as they explore these diverse communities with a focus on Israel’s elderly, including Holocaust survivors, Israeli Arab and Bedouin communities, immigrant children from Ethiopia, the former Soviet Union, North Africa and beyond, the Haredi or ultra-Orthodox community, Druze villages in Israel’s north, Israeli adults with disabilities, and a family celebration for Israelis of Moroccan Jewish descent.
