Christmas in Bethlehem

Christmas Eve in Bethlehem is a big deal. Thousands of people come, and there are concerts and other festivities. This year, there was a famous singer from Spain who performed. I got down in front of the stage with about fifty of my closest photographer and reporter friends, and did my best to get pictures of her. The rest of the celebration, I just wandered around trying to capture the atmosphere, which ranged from ecstatic to meditative. It was definitely an amazing experience, and I got some wonderful photos.

Leah Portraits

I did a portrait shoot around the city with my good friend Leah Jordan today. She's such a natural in front of the camera, and I just love the aviators.

Refugee Demonstration, Tel Aviv

After a hearing at the Supreme Court, I went to a rally co-sponsored by ACRI about "hot return," a highly controversial practice where the army turns refugees back at the Egyptian border without giving them a chance to apply for asylum-seeker status.

This woman's sign says, "we are all refugees"

A reference to the Passover quote "let my people go." Clever, yes?
