We’re a nonprofit organization with a strong belief in the cultural and creative importance of Israel. Our mission is to help bring perceptions of Israel more in line with its dynamic reality, through the engagement of students and professionals in the cultural and entertainment arenas.
To us, the best way to spread this belief is by building relationships between creatives around the globe who can help produce and share the rich stories of Israel and its people.
The backStorygroup brings media producers, screenwriters, film music composers, and other creators to Israel with the intention of building collaborative efforts with their Israeli counterparts.
Each trip is different--tailored to each group-- but features the same core goals: to forge bonds between talented American and Israeli individuals, and to allow American students and professionals to better understand the elaborate history and culture of Israel, in the hopes that their experience will fuel inspiration for future creative projects.
We’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which means your tax-deductible support helps us continue to do what we do. Every dollar you donate goes towards our future trips, allowing us to bring American students and professionals on life-changing tours of Israel.
However, we know not everyone is able to donate. If you’d like to support our efforts in other ways, please watch, read, or consume some of the incredible media content coming out of Israel.
