Israel at 75: Home of Hope
Celebrating Israel’s 75th anniversary with inspiration and wisdom from Rabbi Sacks.
This new animation illustrates Rabbi Sacks’ narration from the album Israel: Hope of Hope, which explores the connection between Ezekiel’s Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones and the creation of the State of Israel.
As Israel celebrates its 75th anniversary, we are thrilled to be re-releasing Rabbi Sacks’ “Israel: Home of Hope”.
Originally made in 2008, the album used the power of words and music to tell the extraordinary and inspiring story of the State of Israel.
This educational resource is designed for students of middle and high school age, as a companion to the animated video “Israel: Home of Hope”, narrated by Rabbi Sacks.
