Powerful Photo Exhibition, “Humans of Tel Aviv” Returns to Palm Beach County

Humans of Tel Aviv 2019

Exhibition features the diverse people of Tel Aviv, Israel

Dec. 2-6

Boca Raton, FL – To celebrate Israel and create a greater awareness of the diversity of backgrounds, cultures and perspectives of its people, Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County invites the community to explore the international Humans of Tel Aviv photo exhibition. Presented by Federation’s Israel Program Center, the display showcases the multiculturalism that defines the people of Tel Aviv, Israel, as photographed throughout the city.

The exhibition is free and open to the public from Monday, December 2 through Friday, December 6, 2019 at Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery in Tequesta.  Exhibit is open during gallery hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Exhibit admission is free for members of Lighthouse Art Center and $5.00 for non-members.

Created by Israeli artist/photographer Erez Kaganovitz, the exhibition features enlarged photos highlighting the vibrant cultures evident throughout Tel Aviv – Israel’s second most populous city – a contrast to what many envision of Israeli culture. The artist was inspired to photograph the melting pot that is Tel Aviv after experiencing the popular “Humans of New York” photographic project.

“We are proud that Federation’s Israel Program Center can introduce a unconventional view of Israel to our community in a way that has never been experienced before, broadening horizons, and providing an appreciation for the connection we all share – our common humanity,” shared Peter Eckstein, Director, Israel Programming and Education Innovation.

In Spring 2019, students at two area public schools had the opportunity to view the exhibit and meet with the photographer. The entire project is part of Federation’s new Israel Program Center, aimed at empowering community members to connect to and engage with Israel through relevant and meaningful experiences that convey the beauty and complexity of Israel’s people and culture.
