What the hell? What started off as an idea in the head of new olah and Tel Aviv resident Yana Kutikova has now blossomed into a veritable media sensation. You may recall we already discussed Haolim in a previous post. Since then, the project has received press coverage on the front page of the Jerusalem Post and the JTA and a few other places (I’ll provide the links when the stories go live) and blogs like eJewishphilanthropy. More than the story of an upcoming television show, this is the story of how a good idea combined with talent and creativity can make things happen. Highlight Films, the production company behind Haolim, is an Israeli film production powerhouse. They are currently in the process of finalizing partnership agreements with some pretty impressive people and I expect to get hear more news from them shortly. In the meantime, check out this hot trailer. If you’re not currently in Israel, enjoying the sun, the beach, the beautiful people, awesome nightlife and amazing historical and spiritual sites, you’re going to wish you were after watching this:
So… think you got what it takes to be the first Ultimate Oleh or Olah? Feel you got what it takes to win a new apartment, a new car, a new job and a fabulous new life in the Jewish homeland? Go to Haolim.tv, read the eligibility criteria, and, you know… apply! Swamp draining experience is unnecessary.
