Waltuch Gallery Exhibits

Located on the second floor of the JCC, the Waltuch Gallery is a community space that exhibits thematically Jewish artwork, or art produced by a Jewish artist. Artists are mostly local, though some exhibits feature artists from around the country and the world. The Waltuch Gallery exhibit and receptions are free and open to the community. All of the work on exhibit is for sale and a portion of the proceeds go to support programming efforts in the JCC.

Letter to our Children

Photographs by Debbie Teicholz Guedalia on display April 1st through April 28th


Letter to our Children is a book by Debbie Teicholz Guedalia, which contains her poetic text and photographs of her journey to Poland in 2010. On display is the book,  the original framed single images from the book, and additional images from the trip. She went on the journey because her children would be following the same itinerary on their high school senior trips, and she wanted to experience these places through the eyes of their educators. What she found was the underlining current of the past, in the present land and people of Poland. The photographs were taken both with a single lens reflex camera and a digital camera. They are printed digitally, as limited archival editions. She uses the triptych format to convey the passage of time and movement. Debbie Teicholz Guedalia has been creating photographic portfolios about the importance of preserving and remembering the Holocaust for over thirty years. She has exhibited internationally, and has photographs in the permanent collection of : The HUC Museum, NYC.; The Skirball Museum, LA.; The Tweed Museum of Art, MN.; The Florida Holocaust Museum, FLA.; and the Yad Vashem Museum, Israel.

Through My Lens

Photographs by Linda Weiss Baruch on display May 1st through May 27th



Artist Linda Baruch has been interested in Photography since she was a child. Her work can be described as Holistic Photography. The philosophy behind Holistic work is that photographs need both craft/technique and art/vision to be successful. Photographs should record what the eye sees and so much more!

Linda finds photography an outlet for artistic expression, as well as a constant challenge. She is particularly interested in photographing wild life and indigenous people of Africa and Asia. Linda also likes roaming the streets of New York with a camera in hand. She has studied photography at The New School, NYU, and The New York Institute of Photography. Her work has been accepted to a number of juried shows and has won awards at several venues. Some of Linda’s pieces can be found in art collections and in the Jewish Home Assisted Living in Rivervale, New Jersey.
