What’s up now and next
Repairing the World
Produced by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), Repairing the World: Frame by Frame is comprised of work by Israeli and American photographers known as JDOCU who come together to learn, travel, and document the JDC’s work around the world.
JDC is the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian organization, operating in more than 70 countries and helping Jews and others in need to survive and strengthen community. Founded in 1914, JDC is a non-partisan, unifying force in the Jewish community.
With local community support, United Jewish Federation of Tidewater works to meet the challenges facing today’s Jewish community at home and around the world, through a network of local Jewish agencies and overseas service partners, including the JDC.
Proceeds from the sales of the Repairing the World exhibit will go to the JDC’s Campaign for the World’s Neediest Jews, above and beyond UJFT’s annual Israel and Overseas allocation.
Dana Friedlander is the fourth generation in a family of professional photographers who have documented Israel since 1926. She grew up surrounded by film, cameras, and photo archives. Now, Friedlander brings her talents to the world using an innovative technique of capturing 360 degrees in a single frame—each photo offers a panoramic view of Israeli sites, immersing viewers in all of the delicate details.
