Tutoring for children with a migration background

Our new project with Schülerpaten Berlin

It’s a bit of a romance, really. We go way back – Schülerpaten Berlin e.V. and Photocircle partnered up right in the beginning, when Photocircle was still an ambitious little toddler, ready to change the way we buy and sell photography. Ever since, we’ve funded 3 projects with our partner organization and are excited to kick off number 4 now: Schülerpaten sets up one-on-one mentoring between German speaking volunteers and children with a migration background in Berlin. As of late, mentees also include refugee children, who have found a new home in Berlin.

Lag BaOmer

Mystic photo of the week

LAG BAOMER by Tal Paz Fridman

LAG BAOMER by Tal Paz Fridman

Today’s story behind the picture belongs to a photo taken by our photographer Tal Paz Fridman in Israel: The Jewish holiday of Lag baOmer has many customs. The most well-known, however, is the lighting of bonfires throughout Israel, especially by children and families.

Lag BaOmer (Hebrew: ל״ג בעומר‎) is celebrated on the 33rd day of the so-called Counting of the Omer. It marks the day on which Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai revealed the deepest secrets of Kabbalah in the form of the Zohar (Book of Splendor), a landmark text of Jewish mysticism.
