Which of these is your favorite?
1. Meir Alfasi
770 Eastern Parkway is the source and we all yearn to visit whenever we can. For simches happening in Kfar Chabad, families love to be photographed at the replica built in 5746.
2. Yoel Belinitzki
When you are among the greatest spiritual army on earth, who doesn’t feel elevated? Here are Rabbi Avraham Shemtov, Chairman of Agudas Chassidei Chabad International and Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch during the Kinus Hashluchim 5775.
3. Chana Blumes
People tend to think that you must always look directly at the camera with everyone in the perfect pose and smiling. Sometimes, the most beutiful shots are the candid ones, when everyone just rolls with it and there’s no stress. It’s then that the energy behind the image is felt.
4. Mendi Hechtman
Students of a martial arts and dance instruction studio in Bnei Brak visited the Dead Sea in southern Israel. This breathtaking image was the result of a day-long photo shoot.
5. Baruch Ezagui
Vice President Joe Biden was there to light the National Menorah outside the White House. Yet, I think this photo of the Menorah reflected off the trumpet of the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” best illustrates the majesty of the event.
6. Yossi Percia
It was an intense moment at the Los Angeles Purim Bash thrown by philanthropist Shlomo Rechnitz. This young boy who is battling an illness was sitting on his lap and the singer Motty Steinmetz came up close to sing the to the boy “Refaeinu Hashem.” May Hashem indeed heal him!
7. Meir Pliskin
This photo was taken in the courtyard of 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn during a chuppa of a young couple. I don’t know the names of the people pictured. I’m simply calling this photo “Generations.”
8. Itzik Roytman
Don’t let the M in the background fool you. It stands for “Major” as in a major Kiddush Hashem. The crowd you see is of Jewish teenagers from around the world participating in a Havdalah ceremony in Times Square following the CTeen Shabbaton.
9. Mendi Toledano
There is something uniquely New York about this photo of a Hachnosas Sefer Torah in Crown Heights. You have the proud demonstration of Jewish life, the united dance of different Chassidim, the row of Brooklyn homes, the Stars & Stripes flag and neighbors cheering on.
10. Levik Hertzel
Every photographer gets told time and time again, “Wow, that photo is amazing, you must have a great camera!” (P.S. We hate that). To which the response is always a variation of “It’s not about the camera or what’s in the bag.” But sometimes, it really is all about what’s in the camera bag :).
