We know that Israel is not only at the cutting edge of technology and new media, but Israelis are seriously into artistic creation in all its forms. It’s a vibrant and diverse scene that includes everyone from rappers performing on street corners to archaeologists reconstructing ancient cities. These are the real Israelis, whose work and lives can be found behind the news headlines.
We at the Israeli Consulate in New York City would like you to get to know them. We have created this video blog as a platform for Israelis to show the world their creations, to tell their stories in their own words, and to engage in conversations with like-minded people. Also, we will be happy if this project will encourage even more Israelis to start using new publishing tools, like weblogs and video blogs, in order to communicate with people from all over the world."
