Temple Sholom displays Through the Lens photographs taken by participants in the Taglit-Birthright Israel Foundation Free Trip to Israel Program.

Through the Lens is an exhibit featuring 36 photographs taken by participants in Taglit-Birthright Israel program.

The display is part of Temple Sholom’s effort to showcase exciting Jewish artists, authors and speakers in events that are free and open to the community.

The featured photographers participated in an educational program offered by the not-for-profit Taglit-Birthright Israel Foundation, which provides a trip to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26 from around the world.

The 10-day journey focuses on three main areas: the narratives of the Jewish people, contemporary Israel, and the formative values of Judaism. Participants interact with Israelis of the same age and explore their views about personal, religious and political identities and ideologies.

The exclusive photographs were selected from more than 3,000 entries from 64 countries and were judged by well-noted international photographers.

Through the Lens is on display through Oct. 5 at Temple Sholom daily except Tuesdays from noon to 4. Admission is free and open to the public. Temple Sholom is at 300 East Putnam Avenue.
