Israeli Faces of Toronto

Portraits by Liora Kogan, Lee Mes, and Liraz Rot Rolnitsky

Similar to Canada, Israeli society is a collection of many different cultures, traditions and heritages. Many Israelis experience hybrid identities reflecting their old home, sometimes left generations earlier, and their adopted new home in a new land.

Israeli Faces of Toronto is a visual exhibition celebrating Israel’s rich and diverse culture on its 70th Independence anniversary through the faces of Israeli newcomers. Photographer Liora Kogan collaborated with Lee Mes of UJA Federation, and Liraz Rot Rolnitsky of MNJCC and together they have skillfully captured each family portrait in their own home giving us insight into their lifestyle and unique interpretation of Israeli-Canadian living as well as the cultural mosaic which they create together.
