WOFI/ICNEXT PHOTO EXHIBITS

For the last eight years, WOFI and icnext participants have shared their stories of Israel with the Cleveland community through the lenses of their cameras. Each year, the WOFI/icnext cohorts have shown us their visions of Israel in the months following their Israel trips by curating and producing provocative, thought-provoking photo exhibits that have allowed us to catch a glimpse of their impressions of the multifaceted, complex nature of the land, people, and places of Israel. Now for the first time, you are invited to see all eight exhibits, available fully online. This is your chance to journey through Israel through the eyes of rising leaders in the American Jewish community. We hope that you’ll explore with open eyes!
