The Jewish Publication Society
From Publishers Weekly
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
