by | Jan 16, 2017 | What’s Happening

Through Monday, Jan. 30, Sandler Family Campus

Photojournalist Ricki Rosen, whose photography has been published by New York Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek, People, and Figaro, will exhibit her work in the Leon Family Art Gallery on the second floor of the Simon Family JCC.

Rosen’s photography is from her book, Transformations: From Ethiopia to Israel, documenting the rescue of 15,000 Jews from Ethiopia during the Operation Solomon airlift. Her before and after photos, 13 years later, capture scenes of their mass exodus with intimate portraits of their lives transformed by their Israeli experience.

Rosen was a speaker for the recent Lee and Bernard Jaffe* Family Jewish Book Festival.
