Artist's Description

Today in Melbourne Australia a new Sefer Torah was dedicated to the memory of Minnie & Wolf Brown by their grandchildren. Approx 500 people attended the dedication.
My father and Minnie were first cousins, they came from a village in Poland called Lovitz between Lodz and Warsaw.
The family migrated to Australia in the 1920’s and 30’s and were fortunate to have left before World War Two broke out.
The family has grown and prospered in Australia and is now numerous.
I shot a series of images today both outside and and insde the Synagogue. June 14th 2009

Introduction of a new Sefer Torah into a synagogue is often accompanied by celebratory dancing, singing, and prayer. This is a very ancient celebration; in First Temple times, around 1000 BCE, the Bible comments that the priests, and even ancient Hebrew kings such as David, “danced before the ark” or “danced before the Lord”, both meaning they danced, celebrated and prayed (often in an ecstatic manner) before the Ark of the Covenant, where God’s word was held. It is a tremendous merit to write (or commission writing of) a Sefer Torah, and a significant honor to have a Sefer Torah written in one’s honor or memory.
