New photo exhibit at Bed-Stuy gallery shows Hasidic community at the beach 

A new art exhibition at the Bishop Gallery in Bed-Stuy captures rare moments of the Hasidic community enjoying themselves at the beach during their Sabbath.

Photographer Judy Mauer says her goal for the photos, eight years in the making, is to encourage people to have more compassion and understanding for the Hasidic community.

The exhibit, Hasidim On The Beach, is open until the end of the month in the midst of several Jewish holidays.

The gallery owner says this is the first exhibit dedicated entirely to the Jewish community.

Mauer says she plans to continue the project in hopes of it becoming an even bigger archive.
