A new video produced by Project Interchange calls on Jews to show the world the real Israel – a place of freedom and opportunity, and not the oft-portrayed hostile, militaristic, aggressive and war-torn place.

Project Interchange, an educational institute of the American Jewish Committee aims to bring opinion leaders and policy makers to Israel for a week of intensive travel and learning.

“The great success of Project Interchange is not that it provides seminar participants with all the answers – but it inspires them to delve more deeply, to think of Israel more carefully and with greater empathy and to seek an even deeper understanding of the political, religious, cultural and strategic factors at issue in the Middle East today," according to Stuart Eizenstat, former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union.
