From the Corners of the Earth: Contemporary Photographs of the Jewish World

Bill Aron, Author Jewish Publication Society of America $40 (143p) ISBN 978-0-8276-0254-0
In commentary and photographs, Aron celebrates Jewish communities in New York, Los Angeles, Havana, three Soviet cities and Jerusalem. Some of his subjects pose for the camera and others are captured unknowingly: a yeshiva student in Israel asleep over his books; a nervous Hasidic bride shortly before her wedding; the morose, defiant faces of Soviet refuseniks; young people who have rediscovered Judaism observing Sukkot outdoors in the New York suburbs. Aron's black-and-white illustrations are human and matter of fact. They convey a feeling of universality of Judaism's many divergent traditions. February
