Description: The ultimate educational tool for schools and individuals who wish to understand the miracle of the State of Israel. A sequel to the pre-state Pillar of Fire series, TKUMA expresses the essence of Israel and what it means to be Israeli: who we are, what we are, what we dreamed of becoming, what we achieved and what we hope we will be. The story of Israel's first fifty years of statehood, TKUMA brings to the screen the tragedies and joyful milestones of Israel's first half century: the ingathering of the exiles as the fledgling state becomes a haven for Jews around the word. Dramatic, personal accounts and documentary footage of the wars fought over five decades, along with rare behind-the-scenes insights into Israel's efforts to make peace. Who is a Jew? Israel wrestles with its national identity. Israel's economic revolution takes the country from the orange to the computer chip in a few years. The people, the places, the spirit of Israel in its first fifty years Divided into six one-hour presentations, this is an excellent educational tool not only for schools, but for any individual who wishes to understand the miracle of the State of Israel.
