Israel Blog Revamped

Much of the news coming out of Israel is about conflict. But what about the day-to-day lives of regular Israelis? The Consulate General of Israel in New York decided to expose the ordinary (and often quite extraordinary) activities of Israelis, both living in Israel and also in New York, using its blog: welcomes contributions from the public. If you have a video clip, a story to write, or just a thought that conveys a sense of what Israel "isrealli" like, send them by way of the blog - and enjoy!

Originally launched in February 2006 as a videoblog (the first ever established on behalf of a state), the blog was recently revamped and re-launched with a broader platform to post stories, pictures and video links.
The blog covers a wide range of topics including music, food, science, sports and popular culture. Blog posts have included videos of amusing Israeli advertisements and footage of a wacky pillow fight that takes place in Tel Aviv each year.
