The Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington (JCCGW) is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of photographs by world-famous Israeli photographer Rudi Weissenstein. Forty four selected photographs from the exhibition Your Fortunate Eyes will appear in the Center’s Goldman Art Gallery from September 1 through October 13, 2013.  This event is free and open to the public.

Primarily taken between the 1930s and the 1970s, Weissenstein’s photographs capture a multifaceted Israel during the early years of its formation. He documented the arrival of Jewish immigrants, the construction of new settlements and industries, the kibbutz collectives and Bedouin Arabs, as well as military parades, cultural events and scenes from everyday life.
