I was privileged to be one of 9 artists from the US, the Western Galilee, Israel and Budapest, Hungary, invited to participate in a collaborative workshop sponsored by the Partnersip2Gether*, which promotes people-to-people relationships through cultural, social, medical, educational, and economic programs. 

While in Budapest I took the opportunity to explore the city and photograph some amazing sites.  

*Partnership2Gether is a program of The Jewish Agency of Israel and Europe and The Jewish Federations of North America.

Emanuel Tree: Located behind the Dohány Street Synagogue -  the weeping willow memorial has the names of 30,000 Hungarian Holocaust victims inscribed in the tree's metal leaves.  

Shoes on the Danube Promenade is a haunting tribute depicting the shoes left behind by the thousands of Jews who were murdered by the Arrow Cross.

It was created by film director Can Togay and the sculptor, Gyula Pauer and Installed along the bank of the Danube River in Budapest. It consists of 60 pairs of 1940s-style shoes, true to life in size and detail, sculpted out of iron.
