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

In "Aviva, My Love" (2006), all the people around Aviva (her young adult children, her husband, her sister, her mother) have problems to solve, and they all turn to her for help, advice, attention, love, and even financial support. With scarcely a minute for herself, Aviva counsels, cleans, cooks, makes love, works in a restaurant, and holds fast to her passionate wish to become a published author. Writing stories whenever she can, she turns to a bestselling Israeli writer for editorial suggestions. 

In the end, the film is a very human comedy. The troubles are somehow resolved. But there remains a serious feminist theme. How is an Israeli woman to fulfill her own ambitions when she is pulled in different directions at every turn? Will Aviva's generous and loving nature survive the demands placed upon her?

Director: Shemi Zarhin. Run time: 1 hr., 47 minutes.
