    Hi, Guy.

    I loved your new presentation about the Galil. It’s interesting how the people and the Nature are connecting with plain harmony. I’m looking foward to see what you will bring us from the spring that starts to sparkle now.

    I’m sitting here in Tennessee looking out at snow. However, it’s much more fun seeing snow in Israel. Did it snow in Jerusalem? My cousin used to be a meterologist in Israel and was on the radio and t.v. for a time. I remember when he forcasted snow in Jerusalem and everyone laughed–but it snowed and he became’FAMOUS’. His name is Uri Batz. Thanks for the beautiful pictures. One small suggestion I have is that you include a small map of the areas pictured so we who aren’t so familiar with where everything is can know where we are seeing in your pictures. Shalom

    I have no time to read the presentation at the moment. Am saving it in a special file only for your pictures. Keep up the good work, really enjoying the photos and am sending them out to all those friends and family who have a fast line. What can we do in order for those with a slow line cannot successfully download. Do you have a suggestion. Perhaps break down the presentation if this is possible if it is not flash. Please inform me because it would be a pity not to send your website out all over the world. Israel is a beautiful country. Amen. Happy Purim.

    Dear Mr Shachar,

    In 1996 I was priviledged to vacation in both Greece & Israel. Greece was special because I am of Greek ancestry and Israel was important to me because of my deep interest of it’s incredible Biblical backround.

    When I landed in Greece I knew I was in the land of my grandparents and it felt "special"…but when I landed in Israel, I felt I had truly come home. (go figure)

    I miss Israel……I miss it so much that it hurts. Once you visit Zion you are changed forever……and if your heart is in the right place, you become a Zionist…and that’s whether you are a Jew or not.

    Today I received your slideshow from a dear friend…..it made me so homesick for the Center of the Universe–Jerusalem.

    One day, God permitting, I will return and my heart will sing.

    God bless America and God bless Israel….the two Nations most dear to my heart.

    May God bless you and may He keep you safe as you use your camera to capture the eternal sights of Israel. Thank you so much!

    I’m a budding photographer and I had great pleasure viewing your work. Initially, I saw the pictures of Israel in Spring-sent to me by a friend who knew we had just returned from two weeks in the Golan and Gallilee for Pesach.

    I then went to your children’s site,your journey through the far east. I was really moved by that work! You captured their hearts and spirit and, like yourself, I too felt the connection you had with them.

    I’m a social worker by training, love to travel and would really enjoy moving into photography as a way to grow spiritually and possibly earn a bit of an income.

    You seem to have developed a combination of ways in which to utilize your talent.

    Once again, thank you for sharing your heart and your work. It is really very beautiful and I enjoyed viewing your efforts, the land and the people I encountered along the way.

    I saw with pleasure your Amazon & Iquitos travelog. Being a peruvian native, I was gratified with your visual tour. We wonder as to the diversity of this world, but even more, the diversity of the jewish people. Wherever we go, we find traces of us. Being the circumstances of life so unexpected, (as the pictures of the tombs in Iquitos show) these findings do not follow the rigid paterns of comunal life in which we grew. This comes to light in the eternal question as to who is a jew. It is a wonderful lesson in tolerance that the jewish nation owes each other.

    Thank you for the photos.

    Hello: I just wanted to tell you how blessed I am by your presentations. Thank you so very much for making them available. I love anything to do with Israel, especially after taking a trip there last spring. Even when I can’t read the titles (and pray for me, I have purposed in my heart to learn Hebrew), as in the presentation on Tisha B’av, the pictures are absolutely wonderful. I will be ever grateful to a new Jewish friend who I met on the airplane between Salt Lake City and New York City who emailed me the link to your site. I have downloaded and watched every one of the presentations available. Thank you, again. May G-d bless you. Sincerely, Kathy Mallette

    Untill now and for ever I’ll never know how they renained alive, they never told me a thing.

    I know almost nothing about Prague althoug I visited there and got vey emotional.

    If you can send me some pictures of Prague that will be a graet joy to me.

    I just loved your work, mainly The Slovakian Sinagogues. We have been in Poland in Sept.2004 and visited among different places, the Stettel Vielkie Oszy and saw the remains of the once striving jewish community. You could take pictures of hundred’s of sinagogues and cemiteries with the very old tombstones, broken, turned over and out of place. In the cemitery of Ulanov, from where the Glatts came, I had the information that there exist a tombstone of my greatgrandfather Majer Glatt, but I couldn’t find it. The 4 great sinagogues of Krakow, in the jewish quarter, are one next to the other but only one can be visited. The other 3 became buildings for other uses. At the old houses you can still see the two small holes where the Mezuzot wher nailed before. We’ll be in Israel in August for our 12- visit. We have a cousin who is also a photographe in Israel, Danchu Arnon, one of his books is about the kovaim used in the country. By jews as well as arabs and others.

    Be well

    I have just had the opportunity to see your Project Haifa. I was most impressed, thank you. I have lived in Haifa now for the past two years and voluteer at the Baha’i World Center. During this most recent war with Lebanon I had sent a regular email out to my families in the USA, NZ and Australia to keep them up with the play. My emails, mentioned different places like Carmel Beach, The Port, Check Post etc. So your slide show was perfect to forward to my family.

    Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

    My friend Sharona in Haifa sent me your link for The Haifa Project. I went to Israel in early April for the first time and totally fell in love with Haifa- and with whatever I saw in Israel. somehow after a couple of hours, I felt "at home", not at all like I was in a foreign country. But I spent most of the time in Haifa and absolutely was taken by its beauty. thank you for bringing back pleasant and wonderful memories and helping to erase more recent upsetting images that we have seen on TV.

    Dear Guy,

    Thank you so much for answering my e-mail. Yes I think it would be an excellent idea to use your photos for the dept. of tourism. I work in one of the largest temples in Boca Raton, Fl. and i will tell everybody i know about your site. I will send them your address so they can see the quality of your work. I am not jewish but your photos has created a desire to visit Isreal. Also you can get your message out to the strong christian population here in the states. You have many friends, you just have to get your visual message out to the world. I will help you in any i can. Good luck and God be with you.

    For people that can’t afford travel to the synagogues -this is perfect and my father was born in Slovakia also!

    Please keep in touch- I want to help you.


    Can you do all synagogues in the world that still survive( in Europe,China,Middle East,etc(not in the USA of course) and write a book?

    It would do very well and you could get sponsers via Jewish groups in the US for promotions!

    I’ve a cousin that’s a Rabbi in San Diego, California by the way.

    I LOVED your presentation on synagogues in Slovakia. My Mother’s family (Strelinger and Breitbart) came from Banska Bystrica and I also went into the building you photographed. In the rear entrance, my family (who still live there), showed me the door where the Rabbi’s private study was. I could still see the nail holes in the door frame where the mezuza was attatched.

    There is also a very well preserved Jewish cemetary in Banska Bystrica. I also have photos of a Synagogue in Brezno (50km from BB), which is now being restored if you would like.

    I found this presentation chillingly beautiful and cried at the sight of the rail station at Poprad.

    Your photo presentation of Nachal Yehudiah brought back pleasant and tragic memories of 30 years ago when I was in the regular army. The small waterfall pictured with steps and railings was the same and different then. We were 15 uniformed soldiers who went on a shabbat trek. 15 went in. 14 came out. On the last part of the trek, we had the choice of either jumping from the top of the waterfall into the pool or going down by rope. I was the third to jump. I waited, swimming in the pool below with the sergeant and a qualified lifeguard. At the top, the officer asked the next in line, a 19 year old, whether he could swim. His last words were "What can happen, maximum?". He plunged down next to me, but did not bob up. The 3 of us dived and dived again in the pea green water, but only to a depth of 3-4 meters due to the pressure on our ears. The following day a helicopter rescue squad extracted the body from a depth of 5 meters. The pool was about 30 meters deep. It seems he either panicked or hit his knee on his forehead. A wonderful trip had turned into a tragedy.

    So to all trekkers I say "Have a good time, but be cautious". I haven’t returned there since then, although I would very much like to.

    its a win/win, but he forwarded your site to me, and shit happens, now its israel leading.

    so thanks to you, I have to go back to croatia as soon as possible to balance the score again.

    A friend sent me your Powerpoint Slideshow on Haifa, English version. It is very well done and informative. Thank you very much for your enthusiasm to re-discover Israel and bring much of it to our attention. I love being in your country and am sad that I will be leaving at the end of the year. All the best, Kiyoko

    I enjoyed very much the photos of the Ramon area in snow. I have been there twice but it truly looks enchanting in snow. When I have time I will check out your other photos. I disseminted the photos to about 50 people on my list. Toda and Szalom. Anna- Ilana

    Expressions of enthusiasm, appreciation and thanks can little describe the pleasure and delight which your presentation on Snow in Ramon gives. The beauty of the area is multiplied by the rare white blanket.

    You are so talented and such a wonderful ambassador for our little country that all the world should know of you. I will do my part by forwarding this amazing work to as many people as I have in my contact list.

    May G-d bless you with continuing success in all that you do and the world wide fame you deserve.

    We were in Bratislava last year. Did you see the engraving on the wall next to the site , where the Synagogue was demolished only a few years ago, to make space for the new bridge’s pillar ?

    (The now famous bridge links to the other side of the Danube).

    For all those who wonder…

    The "Kol Nidre" in the "Synagogues of Slovakia" presentation is performed Johnny Mathis.

    It can be found in two CDs: "Good Night, Dear Lord" and "Johnny Mathis 40th Anniversary Edition".

    Worth mentioning, that this background music was not part of the original presentation, and added later by an anonymous viewer. Although violating the copyright terms of the presentation, the "Kol Nidre" addition adds an enchanting atmosphere to the presentation, which has been circulating around the globe in its new format for more than a year.

    Hello Guy –

    I continue to follow your photographic shows with great enjoyment, even though I unfortunately no longer in Israel.

    I did notice one error on the English site. Your button says “On the media” but to be correct it should say “In the media.” “On the media” would imply that you were commenting on the media; “in the media” means what I think you want, which is mentions or use of your materials in the media.

    Very best regards,

    As one who was an inmate of Sachsenhausen at the age of 14-15 — and who also survived the infamous Sachsenhausen Hunger March in the last 12 days of the War — I was particularly struck by your images of the camp. Its remnants look rather clinically antiseptic now. The images that struck a chord of remembrance: the “Arbeit Macht Frei” inscription within the wrought iron entrance gates; the rolls of barbed wire in front of the electrified perimeter fence; the ranks of 3-tiered bunks, one of which I once occupied.
    These touched a raw nerve within me.

    Your photos are powerful stuff, Guy Shachar.

    A friend sent me your very moving presentation “Berlin Jewish Journey.” Your pictures were very powerful, as was the narrative.

    It reached me on several levels:
    As a Jew, it was an emotional journey.
    As a photojournalist, I could appreciate it from an artistic point of view. As you said, “A picture is worth…” Although I don’t have time to look at your other presentations right now, I will do so soon.

    Of special interest is India (I’m working on the Indian Film Festival of Houston which is a 6-day unique event–not just Bollywood. Please see http://www.iffhinc.org.)

    Another is Africa. I just returned from my second trip to Tanzania. Last year I went as associate producer for a video about the International Year of Planet Earth’s African launch.

    The visit in this past March/April was at the invitation of that country’s government. Four of us went to do a feasibility study for a possible live global broadcast of the wildebeest migration. The story of the first can be seen on http://www.travelblog.org/Bloggers/EllenG and the newest will be there when I complete it–hopefully within the next week.

    I just wanted to send my congratulations for a remarkably sensitive look at Modern Germany.

    Re: Berlin Jewish Journey The train line connecting central Berlin to Gruenwald was built by Emil Rathenau around the turn of the 20th century. Emil, who was Jewish, was one of Germany’s major industrialists, employing 75,000 people at his company, AEG. His son Walter built a villa on the Koenigsallee in Gruenwald in 1912. It is still standing but unfortunately is not open to the public. Walter was gunned down near his home in 1922, an early victim of anti-Jewish activities in Germany.

    Just a quick comment to tell you how much I enjoyed your Kol Nidre presentation. It finally made its way to New Jersey. 🙂 You did a beautiful job. I love to visit synagogues when I travel, but my photos do not compare to yours. Hope to see more of your wonderful work.
    Thank you so much.

    A friend just sent me your presentation of the journey through the Negev from Egypt. One picture was of the road to Eilat. I was on that road in 1985. My, how things must have changed since then. Israel has come a long way since its birth to welcome Jews from around the world.

    I’m sure the hike would be an absolutely wonderful adventure–if one is hearty enough. I used to hike a lot but am too old for that now. But it is good to live vicariously through adventures of others. Thanks for sharing.

    Dear Guy Shachar,

    An Israeli friend of mine forwarded me your Azerbaijan photo essay and so I discovered your fascinating site. I immediately subscribed to your newsletters.

    I once received your “Jewish Berlin” photo diary which impressed me greatly: particularly your photos of Sachsenhausen since this was one of 6 German concentration camps I survived. I forwarded this to all my Jewish friends.
