PlusLight About

"Without reading, we are all without light in the dark, without fire in the cold.” — Tamora Pierce

Now in its second year, #PlusLight is a virtual project conceived by artist Tobi Kahn to focus on seeing light in everyday life, and sharing light and hope in the face of the daunting realities of our time. Inspired by Chanukah, we invite the global community to use this hashtag as a way of documenting the light we see in the world during the holiday season.

PlusLight Participate

Take pictures of light wherever you see it. Streetlamps, menorahs, Chanukah candles and more. Tag photos with #PlusLight on Instagram and Twitter. They will appear in this feed between December 6-31, 2015.

Once a week, we will select one inspiring image to feature on the JCC Manhattan Facebook page.

For every 20 photos tagged with #PlusLight, a book will be donated to the JCC's Gift of Literacy early intervention program, supporting NYC 2nd graders learning to read with one on one volunteer tutoring support.
