COMMUNITY IN FOCUS
Photojournalist Marvin J. Wolf — who’s been honing his craft for nearly 40 years — trained an unobtrusive camera on the 200 families of Congregation Mishkon Tephilo, capturing the congregants of the seaside Los Angeles community of Venice as they observed Jewish rituals and rites. Some 30 digitally manipulated images from his series are on view in “The Tabernacle of Prayer,” sponsored by the University of Southern California Hillel Jewish Center and Congregation Mishkon Tephilo.
The work of this documentarian and combat photographer — who is also a screenwriter and author — has appeared in publications around the world and garnered him the Nikon Bronze Medal for photographic excellence.
