Israel’s remarkable and complicated story

I just watched this terrific ad for the Times of Israel which seems to really nicely capture so much of Israel’s remarkable story and the many facets of Israeli life.

What I love about the video is that it doesn’t hide some of the challenges we face here (specifically running for shelter when terrorists fire rockets into our cities) and yet it remains such a positive and inspiring video.

I hope I retain much of the joy I feel when I watch this video even as I become more accustomed to the challenges we face on a daily basis here in Israel. This video just reinforces my feeling that we live in a remarkable and beautiful country and made a good decision to move here.

On a related note, the soundtrack for the video was created by an Israeli composer, Daniel Markovich, and you can listen to it here, care of his SoundCloud profile:
