Artist's Description

The photo of the four Haredi Jews was taken on January 13, 2007 in Tiberias, Israel.

“Haredi or Chareidi Judaism is the most theologically conservative form of Orthodox Judaism..
Haredi is derived from charada (fear, anxiety), which could be interpreted as “one who trembles in awe of God” (cf. Isaiah 66:2,5).

Haredi Jews, like other Orthodox Jews, consider their belief system and religious practices to extend in an unbroken chain back to Moses and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

Many Haredim view manner of dress as an important way to ensure Jewish identity and distinctiveness. In addition, a simple mode of dress is seen as conducive to inner reflection and spiritual growth. As such, many members of the Haredi community are wary of modern fashions that compromise their standards of modesty. Many men have beards, most dress in dark suits and frock coats, all wear a kippah at all times and generally a wide-brimmed fur hat (typically black) during prayer and outside. " (WIKIPEDIA)
