Description

Elderly bearded man wearing a hat walks on the street in the snow. Another man passes beside him.

Text by Roman Vishniac in The Vanished World: A limited-edition portfolio published by Witkin-Berley Ltd.

This man was known, not only by his knowledge of the Talmud but in human affairs as well. And his neighbors came to him not only in religious matters but also in problems of daily life.
