A few months ago, I was approached by NRG360, which started out as a division of the Israeli newspaper, Maariv. They were doing profiles on six Jews who lived outside of Israel and asked if they could showcase me and my work. It seemed like a great opportunity to break down stereotypes about Orthodox Jews, so I let a camera guy follow me around for several days and took him on a Jew in the City shoot, introduced him to my family, backstory, mission, and even took him on a trip to the mikvah to explain why this mitzvah is so important for my life and marriage. Here are some short and lovely videos that came about as a result. Enjoy!
