You will not want to miss out on these films! 

Yolki Palki

A documentary about the Russian community in Israel today - their successes and personal stories. The film is filled with interesting people who talk about their memories of Russia, the anti-Israel lessons, and the reasons that they left. They look back with humor on the difficulties of their aliyah and laugh at their mistakes in Hebrew. Their stories reflect the difficulties, the achievements, the failures of over a million people of that last great wave of immigration: what it means to them to be Israeli and what chances they have of receiving the stamp of "Israeliness."
