A Zoom discussion with photographer Debbie Zimelman
Sunday, May 1st | 5:00 PM ET
Advanced registration required by Friday 4/29 to receive the Zoom link.
Women on the Front Lines is the first and only photography book offering an insiders’ view, sharing an intimate glimpse of the lives of women who serve in the Israeli army’s combat units. The photographs are accompanied by descriptions – in the soldiers’ own words – of their fears, challenges, and accomplishments. The book is a culmination of five years of photographing and interviewing female soldiers from over 20 IDF units.
Debbie has been a portrait photographer in Israel for 25 years, where she resides.
Presented by the JCA in partnership with Beth Israel Congregation – Bath, Etz Chaim Synagogue – Portland, Levey Day School, Shaarey Tphiloh, and Temple Beth El
