Weegee's Invitation to Dance

I've been quite obsessed lately with these photographs by Weegee of the Jewish community in New York in 1945. I think they are so completely wonderful and full culture. These photographs preserve and celebrate Judaism and Jewishness at a time when it was otherwise so deeply threatened and devastated.
