Old Chapel was full of magnificent photography previous Wednesday, 10th April, featuring pictures taken by the students during many tours to Israel, including Birthright trips. Maggie Weinreb (13), arranged the event, working as Grinspoon Morningstar Intern on campus that is a program arranged by the Israel on Campus Coalition.
The exhibit was co-sponsored by The Idol, U for Israel, Hillel and the Garnet Minstrelles. Speaking about her motivation to arrange this event, Maggie Weinreb told that her main goal throughout the internship was for people to learn about the cultural aspects of Israel. Most people just think of the politics when it comes to Israel, and she wanted to show how much more there is to the amazing nation. She added that she just loves photography, and she realized that many students, over thirty, this past winter break have toured Israel.
The exhibit featured twelve student photographers – Irina Zhorov ‘13, Emanuel Storch ‘16, Zak Smolen ‘13, Shayna Han ‘15, Michelle Goldberg ‘14, Dylan Magida ‘14, Olivia Joyce ‘13, Erika Steuer ‘15, Dylan Taylor ‘16, Ariel Blum ‘13, Ben Berger ‘15 and Jessica Barofsky ‘13.
First position was handed to Taylor, while Joyce was in 2nd spot and Goldberg was in 3rd. Maggie considers this exhibit a huge success. She told that they planned to hang up all of the pictures in Hillel so that people could continue to learn through them. Even tough there are no plans at present for the next event, she expected that it goes on next year with a new set of snaps.”
