Amy Katz: High Holy Day Slide Show — A Look at Ourselves Before Covid

Amy Katz is a photojournalist and member of CBB. She has been travelling and covering the protests across the country. In this post, she shares her High Holy Day slideshow with our community, which she created from photos she captured during last year’s 2019 High Holy Day celebrations in our Santa Barbara Jewish community.

Amy says, I didn’t know why at the time it felt so important to document the services— it was like an obsessive calling, and I had to push pass conventional voices within, and a few without, that said photography in religious services isn’t something we do. Now, given we can no longer be in physical space together, I am so glad I followed my heart, and preserved these memories to share with the Jewish community I have grown to love and adore.
