Lag B'Omer : Sound and Image
Photographs and panoramas by Andy Alpern
Video and sound recordings by Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit
Text by Jay Michaelson

I felt at the tomb that I was being swallowed up by the crowds, but that I was willing to be eaten. Andy's fisheye shots bring that sensation back to me -- one of delicious surrender. I couldn't really control my movements, because I was being bouyed by massive crowds of people who all seemed to be swaying in one sweaty unison. So I yielded, and moved with the mass. Click on Shir Yaakov's video still, listen to the cries and wails of the rooftop musicians playing late into the night. Imagine a devotion so thick it can be felt.
