Jewish women: a world of tradition and change

Front Cover
Jolen Press, 1995 - Art - 240 pages
This stunning photographic essay is the result of Joan Roth's daring journey into disappearing Jewish communities throughout the world. A woman traveling alone - with meager funds and without knowing in advance whom she would meet - Roth uncovers an astonishing array of women. Filled with feeling, the more than two hundred images published here radiate a powerful and unique portrait of Jewish women. Roth richly depicts both the personal and historical dimensions of these women as they persevere and adapt centuries-old traditions amid varied cultural surroundings.
