Every Nook Has a Story

Libi Astaire

You saw it first in Mishpacha. Remember those amazing photo essays that brought the people and places of Eretz Yisrael to our doorstep, whether we were in Manchester, Johannesburg, or New York? Now Esther Tscholkowsky’s Nooks & Crannies column has gotten a picture-perfect redesign in a stunning new book.

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Remember harvesting wheat for shemurah matzah with the Chernobyl Rebbe, and joining the early morning minyan that meets every workday on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv railroad line? How about watching Uri of Uri’s Pizza bake his famous doughnuts during Chanukah, and taking a virtual tour of Machaneh Yehudah’s colorful fruit stalls before Tu B’Shevat? Long-time readers of Mishpacha will surely remember the Nooks & Crannies column that ran every other week for more than five years — those amazing photo essays that brought the people and places of Eretz Yisrael to our doorstep, whether we were in Manchester, Johannesburg, or New York. Now those photo features have been permanently collected in Picture This! — a gorgeous coffee-table book by Feldheim Publishers featuring some of the best of those articles in a brand-new design. But for veteran photographer Esther Tscholkowsky — who traveled the length and breadth of the country peeking into those nooks and crannies, Picture This! is much more than a collection of pretty pictures. “I feel like I’ve found a venue that encapsulates my goal to create a kiddush Hashem through photojournalism.”
