Proceeds from this event will help fund a classroom in Kfar Silver Youth Village in Israel, part of the World ORT Kadima Mada educational network. Your gift will help disadvantaged teens overcome challenges and build a bright future through cutting-edge educational programs and a nurturing learning environment. A portion of funds raised will be directed to other funding priorities of ORT America, including STEM programs that benefit students in the former Soviet Union and international networking initiatives for students and teachers.
Ruth Gruber: Photojournalist
The exhibition celebrates the remarkable life, vision and heroic tenacity of this 20th century pioneer and trailblazer. Photographs span more than 50 years and four continents, from Gruber’s groundbreaking reportage of the Soviet Artic in the 1930s and iconic images of Jewish refugees on the ship Exodus 1947, to her later photographs of Ethiopian Jews in the midst of civil war in the 1980s. A selection of Gruber’s vintage prints never before exhibited will be presented along with contemporary prints made from her original negatives. This traveling exhibition is organized by the International Center of Photography.
