The Kesher Israel film series offers insights into Israeli culture and opportunities to join with others who share similar interests. 

In this month's film, a down-at-the-heels Russian-Israeli circus travels to a Palestinian village in the West Bank at the invitation of its mayor, who hopes it will revive civic spirit. Its star attraction is a single aging lion, which escapes and terrorizes the countryside. The fiery, redheaded female lion "tamer" teams up with a bumbling IDF soldier and an Arab boy to find and recapture it. "Circus Palestine" (1998) becomes a kaleidoscope of love, comedy, sadness, and derring-do. It won five Israeli Academy Awards.
