Spreading the Message of Aliyah

23 Apr

Tonight and tomorrow is Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. This year I would like to celebrate my new country’s Independence by sharing with my readers a project that is very dear to my heart.

Each oleh/olah (immigrant) has a story to tell about how they came to live in Israel. Some of these personal stories began over a hundred years ago and some stories are just now beginning to unfold.

I have two friends who have decided to make a documentary about Aliyah (rising up and moving to Israe). Elad and Yosef have decided to embark on a story telling journey that will trace the personal stories of olim from all walks of life and different periods of time.

The mission of the documentary is to promote worldwide thought about the possibility of returning to Israel, as well as giving inspiration to all audiences to follow their dreams, however implausible they may seem. Those who aren’t thinking of making Aliyah will watch the film to show support and connection while vicariously fulfilling the dream of returning to Israel. And those who have made aliyah it will help foster and create an even stronger bond between the different generations, cultures and religious affiliation.

All of this, while artistically weaving an interesting, unbiased story about real people from different backgrounds choosing to make a life-altering move to the Holy Land.

This film needs your help to get it made. The filmmakers are desperate to raise a specific amount of money soon so that they can start filming the new batch of immigrants that will be coming in the Summer with the help of Nefesh B’Nefesh.

Let us try to raise the money and get this very important part of history made to show to the current and future generations and reconnect the Jewish Nation with it’s homeland.
