On the day that Israel turns 65 years old, it is with great pride that I'll be making my seventh trip to the the Holy Land!. The past 6 times I have been to Israel have been for business, and I am very thankful for the opportunities my career has given me.

On this trip, I am greatly looking forward to filming at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Ben Gurion Univeristy, and at the Hagar Association: Jewish-Arab Education for Equality.

We will also be filming for a variety of Jewish National Fund chapters across Canada to document the inspiring projects that Canadians are funding in Israel through JNF.

It will also be a treat to be spending a night at Kibbutz Kramim, where I stayed for 3 nights last summer while documenting the Acharai//After Me Fellowship.

My ongoing thanks to Neil Oakshott of Eclipse Productions for having me on his team for what will be a very busy and memorable 7 days of filming.
