Launched by TIME founder Henry Luce in 1936, LIFE Magazine was the first all-photographic news magazine and it dominated the market for more than 40 years. Each week during World War II the magazine brought the war home to Americans – it had photographers in all theaters of war, from the Pacific to Europe. The magazine began commissioning work from top authors and photo-journalists. LIFE became iconic – the most widely circulated photojournalist magazine in America. Throughout its long history LIFE Magazine featured stories, pictures and subjects of particular interest to Jewish Americans. The Holocaust, Israel during its founding years, Jewish entertainers and artists, etc., – all were disseminated throughout America by LIFE.

This exhibition is comprised of approximately 60 photographs by photo-journalists such as Paul Schutzer, Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstadt, Horace Bristol, and John Loengard.
