As told by New York photographer Mendel Meyers to COLlive.com:
“Several years back, on one of my photography trips, I took a long and uneventful drive in Alaska.
“Driving from Anchorage to Homer, a rainbow appearing out of a horse farm caught my attention. I was thinking of stopping for a quick photo, yet my partner David argued that it’s perhaps too much of a postcard and therefore, not worth the creative effort.
“I, nevertheless, was determined to capture the rainbow. After climbing over the fence, with a friendly smile to the children playing on a stranger’s farmland, I took a quick photo.
“Satisfied with the results, I headed back to our car. I looked for David and found him in a nearby gift store shmoozing with the lady who owned the shop.
“After joining the conversation, and because I was clearly an Orthodox Jew, I found out that she and her little kids are Jewish. She was visibly touched and walked us back to our car in tears.
“This Erev Pesach I’ll once again be sending her a box with Shmura Matzah.”
