Life in Sderot Today

Sderot Programs

“Israel’s Ability to Deal with Qassams is Almost Non-Existant” – This is today’s headline in the Jerusalem Post. 

It is so important to expose people to the situation our brothers and sisters in and around Sderot are living through.

The daily reality of qassam rockets falling on Sderot and the Northern Negev continues without any hope for change. It is hard to imagine the reality of living in fear of rockets falling around you. This is the day to day reality that Israelis living in and around Sderot live with. Unfortunately, there is little awareness to the daily plight of our brothers and sisters in and around Sderot amongst world Jewry. 

12Tribe Films Foundation is now promoting different cultural programs for synagogues, schools, organizations etc. to schedule so that Jews worldwide can connect with our brothers and sisters living in and around Sderot by better understanding their plight. Movies, Plays, Picture Exhibits and Speaking Engagements – each organization can decide what program or programs they are most interested in to create awareness and raise money to help the people of Sderot.

More programs will be added soon.

Anyone interested in finding out more information about any of the programs can contact avi@12tribefilms.org 

12Tribe Films Foundation is working together with the Sderot Media Center so that the proceeds from the Sderot programs go towards refurbishing the emergency shelters in and around Sderot. (unknown by many, the shelters in and around Sderot need millions of dollars of refurbishments to make them usable)    

Even With the Unfortunate Situation in the South We Can’t Forget the Current Plight of former Gush Katif Residents  

This Saturday night tell your friends and family to set aside time to watch Home Game online and then contact us to set up a community screening. Click here to see the movie online (http://12tribefilms.org/player.php)

The Optical Illusion of Annapolis

Everyone is talking about Annapolis? A success? A failure? The beginning of a process? The continuation of a process?

What bothers me is once again Israel’s leaders are moving forward towards “peace” with its enemies, without first taking care of all the problems that past “peace-making” initiatives have caused.

10,000 former residents from Gush Katif and the Northern Shomron are still homeless, tens of thousands of residents of Sderot and the Northern Negev are under constant rocket fire and Israel’s leaders are moving ahead to create this same scenario again for hundreds of thousands of other Israelis.

 Many Jews and Israelis still don’t understand what befell the former residents of Gush Katif or Northern Shomron and what they are experiencing today. Many Jews and Israelis still don’t fathom the situation that people in Sderot and the Northern Negev are living through on a daily basis.

Our purpose is to open up people’s eyes by exposing them to Home Game the movie and to movies and plays about Sderot, so that more and more people understand, more and more people empathize, and that more and more people tell our leadership to first take care of the casualties they created before moving on to most probably create even more. More critical than all of this is the great divide that the Israeli leadership is creating within the Jewish people. If it is so important to talk with the enemy isn’t even more important to talk to fellow brothers?
