This amazing coffee table book contains many inspirational stories that are not widely known, and that show so movingly that peace is possible. The personalities of the children shine through in their photos as well as in the accompanying quotes, which range from poignant to utterly hilarious. This book is filled with stunning images of Israeli children from an array of different cultures. They are photographed against the backdrop of spectacular Israeli landscapes, ancient structures or iconic buildings, or in the children s homes, schools or kibbutzim. In photos that span the length and breadth of Israel, there are children walking in the mountains of Masada, boys celebrating their Bar Mitzvahs at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Jewish and Arab girls from the Peres Center for Peace playing soccer together. There are Bedouin children using an iPod in the Negev Desert, Bedouin, Arab and Jewish kids learning martial arts at Budo for Peace on the Mediterranean Sea, kids having fun playing the piano on the streets in Tel Aviv. With this exquisite coffee-table book, Alethea Gold and Luca Zordan built upon the success of their previous collaborative works, Children of China (2008) and Children of Africa South African Edition (2010). 100 percent of the profits from those books was donated to children s charities in their respective countries. Alethea and Luca are donating 100 percent of their proceeds from this book to the Ethiopian children at the Nurit Absorption Center in Be er Sheva, Israel, to help fund sports and music coaches and equipment for the Ethiopian refugee children.

Review:

While you may not normally pick up a coffee table book for a bedtime story, Children of Israel, by award winning photographer Luca Zordan and international fashion stylist Alethea Gold, should be the exception. Compiled of moving photographs, set behind beautiful Israeli landscapes, and a range of diverse stories by children in a variety of cultures, Children of Israel proves that peace is possible. Even more, 100% of the book profits will be donated directly to the Nurit Absorption Centre in Beer Sheva, an organization that assists Ethiopian refugee children. The Nurit Absorption Center has agreed to use 100% of the funds specifically to fund schooling, sports and art activities for the children. With a book this great, it is no surprise why we are so delighted about its release. And any parent can attest that there is no greater love than the love for your child, so sit with your children and go through this book together. Continue Children of Israel's mission to spread love and compassion that children so naturally carry in their hearts. --Vogue Bambini Fashion Show Nyc

...a stunningly beautiful book of photographs of kids of all kinds in the Promised Land. ...contains an unusual level of power and dynamism, one that has the potential to bring a vibrant, diverse country into your living room in a way it has...never been there before. ...reading the book creates a visceral experience that bypasses the intellect and goes straight to the heart. It is virtually impossible not to respond to the raw beauty of the children and see the humanity that unites them. The inspirational stories that enhance the stunning images all speak of peace, some with humor, some with a piquancy, others in a tone laced with poignancy. All, however, make the reader feel that unity is possible, and that when it comes to the children, there are no barriers that cannot be overcome. --Linda F. Burghardt, Jewish Book Council, June 2014
