The Israeli Family

Chami and Oksana Zemach, from the small town, Kadesh-Barnea, Israel, decided that Israel's lack of proper PR skills will not get in the way of helping the world understand the real Israel. A year ago, the couple, along with their three daughters Gali, Tamar and Michal, went on a seven-month trip through Europe and the U.S and told the locals the stories they never get to hear on the media. They met up with more than 300 groups, Jewish and non-Jewish, and through their personal stories, told the untold story of Israel. It cost them about 600,000NIS, spent from their own pocket, to reach many people and touch many hearts. There was no secret motive, only the wish to make a difference. Now, they started a project called "The Israeli Family", in which they wish to continue their trip around the world, and send more families abroad to tell their own stories of Israel.
