Images Through Time

Tags: Israel Engagement, Memory

By Rebecca Kowalsky

After making Aliyah from Chicago in 1985, I had the privilege of raising my children and building a business with my husband, Yossi.

My passion of photography emerged irrepressibly and the gift of developing a successful photography business followed that I called Images Through Time.

To me, photography answered an inherent need to appreciate and prolong the beauty and experience around me everywhere, but quite intensely in this, my homeland of Israel.

In my burning desire to take in the sights, and the human landscape of this rich and spirited country, photography become far more than a tool. It has became an extension of myself. At the same time it enables Israel lovers abroad to connect and hold onto something that was far away, but deep within.

Wanting to do more with the visual power of Eretz Yisrael in addition to my event and portraiture lines, I ventured into publishing functional Judaica: namely, the Land of Israel Birkon. A vibrant and spiritual angle on the land of Israel, images of its people and its landscapes graphically designed and combined with the sacred words of the rituals that make us a People – a fusion of art and purpose.

Photographs of Israel empower those who want to feel connected to Israel, to embrace and hold close something that is precious to them.

Those living here or abroad; Jews and non- Jews, religious and secular alike, have expressed a deep satisfaction and enrichment as they have a realtime view of life here in Israel, thus enabling a true bond and participation in a sense..
