In the spirit of “all of Israel are responsible for one another” (Babylonian Talmud, Shavuot, 39), the TwinLens initiative is happy to invite students in grades 6-8 to participate in a photography competition that links communities across different continents.
The TwinLens initiative has been made possible through the support of the Global School Twinning Network, Jewish Agency for Israel, Israeli Ministry of Education, Israeli Ministry of the Diaspora, the Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot and its Jewish Lens project, founded by photographer Zion Ozeri.
As part of this initiative, classes from around the world are invited to take part in two educational sessions and upload photographs depicting daily life in their communities. Each pair of schools will submit an “exhibition” of student photographs.
The challenging period we currently face reminds us of the importance of communal and inter-communal support.
