– A New WPBT2 Documentary Explores Israelís Innovative Side –
Peel back the politics and religion and you will find Israel is just a small stretch of land, with little natural resources. Remarkably, this small nation has emerged as a world leader in the development of new technologies, driven by the people from around the world that now call Israel home. Former Harvard lecturer Dr. Tal Ben Shahar, a pre-eminent teacher on the science of happiness, believes he understands what it is about the nature of Israeli’s which drives them to innovate and he was willing to give up his seat to return to his homeland.
Israel Inside, a new documentary premiering Tuesday, November 29 at 8:00 p.m.on WPBT2,is a film with a refreshing positive approach to this tiny country. By sidestepping the usual conversation of politics, conflict and violence, this film shows Israel to be a dynamic, inventive and humanitarian society. Tal helps us discover that the deep-seated Jewish values such as freedom, education, family and responsibility (tikun olam), mixed in with a good dash of chutzpah, contribute to Israel’s accomplishments in both the economic and humanitarian spheres. We learn that these core values define Israel and have fueled this tiny, resource-challenged country’s drive to become an invaluable asset to the world.
