Lane Dworkin Authors + Innovators Festival

Humans of October 7

Sunday, March 17, 2pm
JCC Auditorium C

Through the lens of photography and personal stories, photojournalist Erez Kaganovitz tells the story of October 7. Please join this important event to bear witness to the atrocities of 10/7. By doing so, we work together to ensure that this never happens again.

Photographer, a native of Tel Aviv, and TEDx speaker, Erez Kaganovitz is the human behind the Humans of Tel Aviv, Humans of Israel, Humans of the Holocaust and Humans of October 7 projects. Through his work, Erez has helped bridge a cultural gap in society both within and outside of Israel. His compelling work brings understanding, emotional connection, and unity to many around the world.

Erez’s portraits will be on display through the end of April. The exhibit is free and open to the public during JCC hours.

Registration is required.

Thank you!

Humans of Israel

Portrait Exhibit at the JCC

On display throughout November and December at the JCC
in the Gallery Wall between the Hart Theater and the Festival Bookstore.

The JCC is proud to present a special exhibit of 36 large-scale portraits by Israeli photographer Erez Kaganovitz from his Humans of Israel project. Click here for details on his presentation on the exhibit.

The portraits will be on display throughout November and December.

The exhibit is free and open to the public during JCC hours.

Humans of Israel combines photojournalism with digital storytelling. With intriguing, thought-provoking photographs and the stories about the humans behind them, the exhibition puts a human face on an extraordinary place and challenges preconceptions those outside of Israel may have by communicating a sense of our shared humanity. The Humans of Israel exhibition offers a fresh look at the rich and remarkably diverse lives of Israelis and showcases Israel’s diversity, multiculturalism, and vibrant civil society.
