It first caught my eye last month when I was taking photographs of Meylakh Sheykhet
, a haredi Jewish man who is fighting to preserve what's left of the once beautiful structure.
insisted I train my lens in a different direction.
So I posed Sheykhet
against a different background and decided I'd return later that evening for dinner.
Sheykhet, the Ukraine director of the Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet Union, told me it "panders to, and thereby enhances and legitimizes, anti-Semitic attitudes."
