A photojournal of the Wooster Square neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. And, occasionally a photo of New Haven, of course, of course.

Not Wooster Square....But
The Ancient Seaport of Jaffa. Jaffais one of the oldest cities with a harbor in use since the Bronze. This is the port where Jewish settlers first came back to the land in the 1800's. A window in the old city. Woman waiting.
Because Jaffa is such a picturesque town brides come here to be photographed. On this day a bride came and a group of local students surrounded her and began to dance. When they opened up she was twirling around like a whirling dervish.
The Statue of Faith depicting the Sacrifice of Isaac, Jacob's Dream and the Fall of Jericho. More Jaffa tomorrow.
After serving congregations in Fairfield, Bridgeport, and Wilton, CT I am the Senior Redevelopment Pastor at Orange Congregational Church in Orange, CT. Prior to that I lived in Jerusalem (the real one) and I have three GORGEOUS children, the loves of my life.
