We recently learned about a new film in production that gets to the heart and soul of what Act for Israel is all about.

Billed as “The most amazing true story you have ‘never’ heard!”, Ben-Yehuda is the true story of the man who revived the Hebrew language, and whose dreams ultimately helped lead to the establishment of the State of Israel. The film is currently  slated for release in 2014. We will keep you updated on the progress of the film, and hopefully will provide updates and images as production gets underway.

From the production company:

CoDe Pictures presents a movie about Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the father of modern Hebrew. A man born in the Russian Empire in 1858, great in intellect, small in stature and frail from a lifetime of Tuberculosis.

He believed in the symbiotic relationship between the rebirth of Israel on its ancestral soil and the revival of Hebrew as a spoken language. For his conviction, he was ostracized, persecuted and even imprisoned. This frail man suffered greatly, but the power of his conviction never diminished!

For everything there is needed only one wise, clever and active man, with the initiative to devote all his energies to it… one pioneer who will lead the way without leaving any possibility of turning back.”  –Eliezer Ben-Yehuda

It’s really more than a movie: it’s a movement to honor the founders of modern Israel.
