Jews for Judaism is holding a Jewish-themed photo contest online. “Everybody has a camera,” says Rabbi Zalman Kravitz.
Jews for Judaism, a U.S. education and outreach organization, is holding a Jewish-themed photo contest as part of their Be True project.
Students ages 10-22 living anywhere in the world can submit photos connected with “The Joy of Judaism” along with brief descriptions.
“The goal is to help Jewish students really examine what is important about their Judaism [and realize it] is something to be happy about, something to be excited about,” said Rabbi Zalman Kravitz, education director at Jews for Judaism.
The winner will receive $500 or a prize of equal value. The contest ends March 15, 2010.
Be True project, established in 2008, is supported by The Jewish Community Foundation and the Jewish Venture Philanthropy Fund.
Past contests have been writing-oriented.
“A photo contest is an attempt to be more viral and in touch with the interests of teenage Jews,” said Kravitz.
“Everybody has a camera. Everybody can take a picture.”
