Personal Message from Yishai Fleisher (the Director and Producer):

Along with a return to authentic Jewish spirituality and efforts to bring about Jewish unity, the embracing of the Land of Israel in our lives is a major part of the rectification for the sin that lead to the 9th of Av being a day of mourning.

Instead of rejecting the land as did generation of the spies in the desert, we must take up the historic opportunity of building a holy country in our homeland.

The rebuilding of the Jewish Commonwealth is the most exciting project of the Jewish people in 2,000 years! Be a part of it!
