Following the success of the "Joy of Aliyah" online documentary series, which followed the immigration to Israel
of US television producer, best-selling author and celebrity chef Jamie Geller, Nefesh B'Nefesh has teamed up with the “Kosher Rachael Ray” to produce a sequel co-produced by 12Tribe Films and IsraelVideoNetwork.com.
The new behind-the-scenes "Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller" series, which premiered on April 2, features monthly webisodes released on the first Tuesday of every month, documenting Jamie and her family’s first year as new olim, while showcasing the beauty of living in Israel.
The new food and travel series is expected to surpass the popularity of the original series, which continues to grow and has garnered over 170,000 views on YouTube. It was also combined into full-length film which was featured at the Jerusalem Cinematheque’s Jewish Film Festival.
Episodes follow Jamie as she visits famous culinary locales in Israel – restaurants, vineyards, dairies, farmers’ markets and the like, showcasing the real Joy of Israel.
Jamie Geller made aliyah to Israel together with her family last August through Nefesh B’Nefesh, the aliyah organization that works together with The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, JNF-USA and Israel’s Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, to facilitate aliyah from North America and the United Kingdom.
Jamie Geller is the founder of Kosher Media Network (KMN), a 360-degree content creator and the first multi-platform network for the kosher market combining traditional media (magazines, books, and broadcast) with the latest in digital, online, and social media.
In the spring of 2011, KMN, unveiled its Joy of Kosher consumer brand, with the simultaneous launch of JoyofKosher.com – the first and #1 social networking community for the kosher foodie, and award-winning magazine Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller.
