GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich's Temple Sholom is displaying a new exhibit featuring the work of international photographer Todd Shapera. 

The ongoing event, which will be on display through June, marks The Temple’s first foray into artistic exhibitions pertaining to Jewish culture, according to a press release. 

The exhibit focuses on a series of vivid documentary-style photographs of the 19th Maccabiah Games, which took place July in Israel. They are currently on display in the Davis Lounge at Temple Sholom at 300 E. Putnam Ave. in Greenwich.

The Maccabiah Games, dubbed The Jewish Olympics, features more than 9,000 athletes from nearly 80 countries and occurs every four years in venues across Israel, according to the release. 

“I am honored and delighted that Temple Sholom has invited me to share my Maccabiah art in this beautiful space,” said Shapera.

The photographs document the lives of U.S. athletes and coaches during the games and capture moments of triumph including the victory of the US Men’s Open Basketball Team over Argentina and U.S. Taekwondo coach, Mark Gitelman’s astonishing kick in the Dead Sea, according to the release. 

Admission to the exhibit is free. For more information, residents can call 203-869-7191 or email alice.schoen@templesholom.com.
