A Living Lens: A Globe-Trotting Rabbi

I received a lovely note today from Dov Burt Levy, a columnist for the Jewish Journal North of Boston, who passed along the review he wrote of “A Living Lens.” Readers should, of course, peruse the whole piece, but there’s a lovely tidbit at the end that I can’t help but highlighting:

Because the Jewish world is so large and I was born a long time after 1890, I hardly expected to find anyone in the book I knew personally. However, I was taken aback (and delighted) to find on page 203, my rabbi during my Air Force service in Paris in 1955-56. Captain Harry Z. Schreiner was pictured greeting two army nurses after Rosh Hashanah services in Korea. It’s a small world.

Indeed.


Alana Newhouse, the Forward’s Arts & Culture editor, is touring the country, speaking about her new book, “A Living Lens: Photographs of Jewish Life From the Pages of the Forward.”
