Last year, six students from Mercaz High School participated in an international photography competition sponsored by Beit Hatfutsot, The Museum of the Jewish People at Tel Aviv University. In The Jewish Lens class led by Susan Farber, the students explored Jewish identity through photography. The six students submitted thirteen works to a local panel of judges, who selected three images to send to Tel Aviv for the inaugural exhibition, Jewish Lens: Worldwide Youth Photo Competition, which opened on July 14, 2016. One of these photos, Hands, by Hannah Lempert, won first prize in the competition.


All thirteen submissions are on view at the Skirball Museum in Mayerson Hall. Participating artists are Renee Blachman, Sadye Goodman, Annie Jonas, Hannah Lempert, Jamie Meschoulam, and Brooke Suddleson.
