Cal05-F-Gershman2“Besa: The Promise,” a black and white photography exhibit by artist Norman H. Gershman, will be on display until June 30 at the Waltuch Gallery of the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly.

Norman Gershman is a renowned Jewish-American photographer who documented the lives of Albanian Muslims who rescued Jews during the Holocaust. This exhibition is on special loan to the JCC in connection with its recent Holocaust remembrance commemoration, which featured a screening of “Besa: The Promise,” a story that weaves Norman H. Gershman’s journey with that of an Albanian Muslim, who fulfilled a promise (or besa) his father made to a Jewish family by returning a set of books they left behind.
