We seem to be exceeding a series of records at the moment.

Extreme heat is breaking all records both in temperatures and duration which is stretching electric consumption to the limit.

Record number of COVID-19 cases have been diagnosed.

A record number of politically dysfunctional pronouncements followed by conflicting decisions.

Despite everything, Israel is still managing to forge ahead with good news in many other areas.

 Learn how an Israeli NGO is helping to rebuild homes and the lives of those who are economically and socially disadvantaged.

This is real tikun olam – repairing the world in the finest Jewish tradition.

 

 

A WORLD POWER

Israel is finalizing plans to connect its power grid to Europe with a massive cable.

 

 

GET AWAY FROM COVID

At a time when social distancing is the order of the day and staying indoors is driving people mad how about taking a hike in one of Israel’s amazing national parks?

If you can’t do it physically then at least enjoy this short tour.

 

 

A FLYING AMBULANCE

 When an ambulance gets stuck in traffic it can make all the difference between life and death for the person needing emergency assistance.

Israel has ambucycles which can navigate where conventional ambulances cannot. However, they are restricted as to their capacity and cannot transport patients to hospitals.

Now the startup country is developing a flying ambulance which can take off and land vertically.

Another Israeli innovation poised to revolutionize emergency care and save more lives more quickly.
