This stunning photographic essay is the
result of a
daring journey into disappearing Jewish communities
throughout the world.
Roth uncovers an astonishing array of women.
Filled with feeling, the more than two hundred images
here radiate a powerful and unique portrait of the beauty
of Jewish Women. Roth richly depicts both the personal
and historical dimensions of these women as they
persevere and adapt centuries-old traditions amid
varied cultural surroundings.
"The effect," in the words of Rocky Mountain News
art critic Mary Voeltz Chandler, "is like opening a
jewelery box filled with so many secrets women knew
but never told each other."
