Our lives are surrounded by mitzvos - all we need is to open our eyes and see them. A flowering pomegranate tree is more than just a pretty sight. Golden sheaves of wheat, a majestic ram's horn, a fragrant citron orchard - each of these has a story to tell that transforms the mundane into holiness and fillls our souls with closeness to Hashem.
With this in mind, renowned photojournalist Esther Tscholkowsky took her camera in hand and photographed the everyday spiritual beauty of Eretz Yisrael. Through captivating pictures and fascinating information about them, Picture This! accomplishes her goal - to promote kavod haTorah while creating a wonderful experience for the entire family.
