driven by a desire to record commu-
nities of "vanishing" Jews.
Whether it was Ethiopia or
Uzbekistan, he found "an incredible
reservoir" of Jewish culture inter-
twined with other worlds, and he
was determined to unravel that
thread before it disintegrated.
One haunting image comes from a
community of rural Yemenite Jews.
A grandfather reads a Jewish text
with his young grandson.
Years later he found that boy, a
teenager named Mazal — Hebrew
for "fortune" — in an Israeli absorp-
tion center. Mazal, then 16, along
with his 14-year-old wife and infant
daughter, are transplanted to Israel,
but they seem hardly changed out-
wardly.
Today that baby girl is 12. She
lives with her religious parents and
four siblings in the Tel Aviv suburb
of Rehovot. She loves to roller-
blade.
Brenner embraces these stories of
exile and home with a spiritual fer-
vor of his own.
He recounts the story of Abraham,
who obeys God's commandment to
"Lech rcha" — "Go forth" — by
journeying into the wilderness of
Canaan.
And God in Deuteronomy com-
manded the Jews to remember the
laws of Israel by affixing a mezuzah

to the doorposts of their homes.
Brenner points out that the word
mezuzah" derives from the Hebrew
verb "zuz," or go.
Jews "are both sedentary and
nomads," he says. "This injunction,
`Lech l'cha,' is not a curse — it's
truly a project, a vocation. History
unfolds and enables the Jewish peo-
ple to accomplish this vocation."
Often Brenner finds Jews at their
place of work, like the Tajik barbers
in a local barber shop from his first
trip to Tajikistan, and later the same
group after they had immigrated to
Israel — posing in the Dead Sea.
In another photo, he shows Italian
Jews at St. Peter's Square outside the
Vatican, selling pictures of the pope.
"Not only didn't they succumb to
the temptation to idol worship —
they are selling the idols," he says.
The more he sees, Brenner says,
the less he understands about the
world's Jews. ❑
