Havana Curveball/Touchdown Israel
Heal the world
What does it mean to become a bar mitzvah? Why do some kids have material advantages simply due to the circumstances into which they were born? These are some of the questions with which 13-year-old Mica wrestles as he embarks on a quest to deliver baseball gear to kids in Cuba as part of his bar mitzvah service project and his gratitude to the country that welcomed his grandfather during the Holocaust.

The thrill of victory
Yes, there is American-style football in Israel! Witness an eleven-team league of pigskin-crazy amateurs play on too-short soccer fields while wives and parents look on anxiously. The players and coaches represent a cross-section
of Israeli society, including, Arabs, Christians and religious settlers. Their shared passion and love of the sport creates unexpected friendships off the field.
