Photography is Our Spiritual Paintbrush

Exploring the world with the camera lens, capturing its beauty...
We contemplate the words of the founder of Chassidism, The Baal Shem Tov,
"Everything a person sees is a lesson in the service of G-d"

Changing Perspective

An icy view:



Changing Perspective
G-d is a simple unity. Non-complex. Non-composite. 
 It is only from man's vantage point, from below looking up, that he sees division. 
To live with the One in focus is to see the world from His perspective.

Blazing Inspiration

A Brooklyn morning - via iPhone:



Chassidic Fire
When Reb Zusia and Reb Levi Yitzchak read the Tanya for the first time -
separately, each in his own home - they were so inspired,
that they felt compelled to tell each other about this amazing Chassidic work.

They met in the middle of the city and it burned with the fire of their inspiration.


Wishing you a warm Shabbos!

From the world I perceive Him

A remarkable leaf in Ithaca, NY:


From the world

G-d looked into the Torah and created the world.
 - Zohar - 
 Man can look into the world and see G-d. 
 A simple leaf declares the love that G-d invested in His creation.

The Baal Shem Tov's Maxim

Illuminating The World

Battery Park, NYC



Illuminating The World
The Chanukah Lights remind us that illumination begins at home,
within oneself and one’s family.

Only then is one able to illuminate the entire world.


Wishing you a Happy Chanukah,
