How would the First Zionist Congress look if it were held in 2017, instead of 1897?

A new video released by Israel's Foreign Ministry tries to answer the question. The satirical video imagines how the effort to establish the Jewish State would look today, with participants attempting viral videos, cats, and Snapshat filters.

Israel is celebrating 120 years since Theodore Herzl gathered 208 delegates in Basel, Switzerland, on August 29, 1897 and discussed how to re-establish a homeland for the Jewish people. The event is considered as milestone in the struggle for Israel's establishment.
