Jerusalem

I happened to be at the Western Wall complex in Jerusalem on the 4th night of Hanukkah, 2009.  The Hanukkiah was in preparation to be lit and the sun was slowly setting.  As I waited in expectation for the lighting to occur I noticed that a religious Jewish woman was having her wedding portrait taken in the woman’s section of the Western Wall complex.  A vision in white in the midst of a sea of black.

This was an especially poignant moment for me, as I was heading home the next day, and was in truth saying goodbye to a place that felt like home.
