JUCAICA – A Collection Created by Members and Friends of Temple Emanuel, Lakeland Florida, May 2020.
WHAT IS JUDAICA? For our purposes, we have chosen to define Judaica as all those objects that enhance the celebration of being Jewish. As Jews we adhere to rituals that affirm our identity and connection to our history and traditions.
We have included everything that was submitted by 23 members and friends of Temple Emanuel Lakeland. Please note that not everyone is a professional photographer and no major touch ups were made, just some cropping and a few images were lightened. The glare is real, but we all understand how that happens.
We hope you enjoy this collection as we view ourselves as a community, celebrating our past and present through Jewish objects. May your spirit be kindled as if you were lighting the Shabbat candles for the first time. There was much joy and learning putting the presentation together. I thank you for allowing me this creative journey into your hearts and homes.
