Winner of ‘Inspired by Israel’ contest

The Israel Video Network has announced the winner of the “Inspired by Israel” contest sponsored by The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation.

The video, by Sivan Felder, is described as “a poetic look at our connection to Israel and her significance, through the eyes of a teenage olah chadasha.”

A total of $20,000 in cash prizes were awarded to the winning videos—including a $8,000 grand prize to Sivan Felder and Batsheva Shachnovitz for their video, “Olah Chadasha (New Immigrant),” a poetic exploration of a teenager’s journey in Israel after making Aliyah five years prior. During a 10-day period of public voting, entries in this year’s competition received more than half a million views in 236 countries.

The Israel Video Network launched the “Inspired by Israel” video contest in March 2017 in partnership with the Milstein Family Foundation. Here’s the video:
