The Color of Shabbos

Rabbi Michoel Ogince has always had a passion for photography, and when he decided two years ago to fuse his love of the camera with his love for Judaism, he gave birth to what he considers a masterpiece.

From “Pictures With a Purpose,” a photo blog hosted by the website, Ogince shares his work with an audience that spans the globe. Each week, he features an original piece illustrating an inspirational caption gleaned from Torah and Chasidic thought.

For 6 days we work within the mundane world,
faced with challenges and shades of gray.

The 7th is Shabbos, a day of rest,
when our eyes are opened to the vibrant colors of spirituality!
