What’s your favorite ISRAEL21C video and why?

I love the ISRAEL21c video that shows 70 seconds of Israel because it gives me chills every time I watch it. Makes me proud to be Jewish and Israeli.

What’s your favorite part about being a digital ambassador?

I love being a digital ambassador because I’ve been promoting Israel for as long as I can remember and now I have even more reason to do it.

Best Israeli song you know?
