Photos: High Holiday Services Held Virtually At Temple Israel.

This year, the Jewish High Holidays looked a little bit different in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. I was called by my friends at Temple Israel of Boston to come document their virtual Yom Kippur services, held to an audience of many online but to an empty sanctuary on site. It was super interesting to be a fly on the wall to document this process. Here is a gallery of some features from the two day shoot.

Photos: Shabbat At Temple Israel Boston.

You never know where your shooting will take you. This was a different kind of assignment from the majority of ones I do, but I really enjoyed shooting for Temple Israel in Boston at their Shabbat services last week. 

The Temple’s public relations team asked me to shoot some staged portraits of one of the Rabbis, Rabbi Elaine Zecher, and to provide some general coverage of their Qabbalat Shabbat services. This was a delicate act, as technically one isn’t allowed to shoot photos during services. They made an exception this one time, so I tiptoed around and made use of my camera’s quiet shutter mode. 

Here are a few portraits and candids from the evening. A big thanks to fellow Boston photographer Elan Kawesch for referring me for this job!
