Hanukkah is a Jewish Festival commemorating the recovery of Jerusalem and subsequent rededication of the Second Temple at the beginning of the Maccabean revolt against the Seleucid Empire in the 2nd century BCE. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days.The festival is observed by lighting the candles of a candelabrum with nine branches, called a menorah.. Each night, one additional candle is lit until all eight candles are lit together on the final night of the festival.

Following a successful career in management and Venture Capital I turned to Photography. I studied Art's history and philosophy and attended numerous workshops. I try to create photos that have direct visual impact that engages the spectator seducing him to closely observe them and hopefully stimulate a thought process. I have won numerous prizes in international photography contests.
