The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Closed on Saturdays

Hat Tip to Feter Yechiel haMelech for the word about the exhibit 


The blurb from OCJAC site:

Sharon Wohlmuth's powerful black and white photographs reveal the essence of the extraordinary Lubavitch community in Crown Heights, New York. Taken in 1974, through the lens of this renown photojournalist, Wohlmuth's striking and historic images, capture moments of joyful celebration, intense prayer and the unique spirit of this Crown Heights community.

"Closed on Saturdays" will open First Friday, November 6th, 5-9:00 pm at the Old City Jewish Art Center (OCJAC) 119 N. 3rd Street. "Meet the Artist" Reception is scheduled for Wednesday, November 18th from 6:30-8:30 pm.

This looks very cool - it's in Philly, so it'd be a trip to check it out . . . but might be worth it.
Anyone spot anyone they can name in the images?
