The Jewish Innovation

Never before has the beauty of Israel been showcased for the world to see in reality TV format with the mission of educating, exciting and connecting people to Israel. This new series will reshape the entire image of living in Israel into one that is exciting, inspiring, and beautiful.

That is what Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller is all about! (and you can see for yourself in Episode #1 above, that we just launched!)

It is an online web video series, that will be converted into a feature length film for both film festivals and TV Specials, giving a face-lift to the image of living in Israel, for people worldwide.

Jamie Geller’s successful web video series “Joy of Aliyah” garnered over 145,000 video views on YouTube and generated great interest and excitement for Israel and aliyah. Due to popular demand, a new series “Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller” will capitalize on the “Israel” buzz created by its predecessor and will follow Jamie and her family’s first year in Israel, now showcasing the joy of living in Israel.

Most importantly, the series will capitalize on the medium of food throughout as a vehicle to open up Israeli life and culture to viewers. This will be accomplished by visiting noteworthy culinary locales in Israel – restaurants, vineyards, dairies, farmer’s markets etc… sharing a behind-the-scenes look at how Jamie is expanding her food media and marketing company in Israel to include photo shoots, test kitchen access, industry conferences and trade show exhibitions… and meeting and showcasing various Israeli personalities both prominent and undiscovered sharing both their stories and a day in their lives.

Each episode will be hosted by Jamie with her trademark warm, generous, personable personality that viewers have come to expect. Jamie will be meeting, sharing, showcasing, learning, laughing and crying with her new friends… revealing to the world, the real Joy of Israel.

The Impact

Our objectives are simple:

We want to excite people about life in Israel

We want to strengthen the average person’s connection to Israel

We want to showcase the real “faces” of Israel, through real stories about real people

We want to feature the beauty and diversity of Israel through food, travel, culture, historical and spiritual sites

We want to inspire people to live in Israel

What Will You Do with the Money?

It costs us $10,000 for each of the 10 episodes for this inspirational Israel video series. We are raising $50,000 from sponsors and we are looking for matching funds from people around the world who are as excited as we are about bringing the real image of life in Israel and the people of Israel to the world.

Avi Abelow
Israel

After 7 years of management consulting for a global firm, I left my career to produce a movie about an untold story of Israel that had to be told ("Home Game" - about the last youth basketball tournament in Gush Katif)! I then set up 12Tribe Films to produce and promote movies about Israel and the Jewish people. Today, 12Tribe Films is a social media powerhouse promoting online videos and movies about Israel and the Jewish people via our flagship website israelvideonetwork.com I'm committed to using my creative, analytic, oratory, online video and social media marketing skills to help educate and inform people about issues related to the Jewish people and the Land of Israel today.
