Photographer Joan Roth focuses her lens on women living and working in the former Soviet Union whose lives have been touched by Project Kesher, an organization that helps women in the region participate in Jewish life while providing them with skills to be leaders in Jewish community building and social activism.
Roth’s new body of work documents historic changes in women’s rights and religious oppression. The exhibit is presented by Project Kesher and the Ukrainian Institute of America.
