Summer Camp at Central Synagogue

While I was at Central Synagogue to photograph headshots for their new staff members, I spent some time at the summer camp to make some photos to be used in the synagogue’s high holydays annual appeal.

New Staff at Central Synagogue

It was 95 degrees and humid the morning I photographed Central Synagogue’s new staff outdoors on 55th Street. Luckily everyone looked cool during the few minutes I spent with each person. I wasn’t as lucky, spending two hours on the street to work with everyone, but their smiles kept me feeling great.
