The Traveling Cantor, Jack Falk - For the NYTs

Photographed the charming Jack Falk for the New York Times for a story on traveling cantors.  Congregations that are too small to have their own will bring him in for the High Holidays.  Jack kept me entertained with jokes and even sang for me a bit.  I was basically loving life until I was dive bombed by wasps.  Clearly camera shy, they were not interested in having their picture taken.  My hand blew up to about hulk size.  Fortunately, Jack's wife was nice enough to give me a poultice to take the swelling down and I was able to carry on.  It's rough out their sometimes, even for God's chosen people. 20130903_Religion_00120130903_Religion_024 _NST6496 20130903_Religion_015 20130903_Religion_004 20130903_Religion_025 20130903_Religion_029 _NST6847 20130903_Religion_031
