A new article in the Atlantic!

Dear Kickstarters,

The last week or so we've been humbled by the generosity of many new supporters! We will try to thank everyone individually, but for now big thanks to everyone for believing in "A Third Way". The synergy is happening, and just today, we got a really nice article (and trailer) in The Atlantic:

At the same time, don't forget that Kickstarter is a "do or die" funding platform. We're now halfway into our 60 day period in which we must reach our $7000 goal. As I feel the pressure breathing down my neck, I keep telling myself it's the GOOD kind, that keeps me working hard on this "crowdfunding" endeavor. I want to ask all of you: please consider contacting 10-15 of your friends who you think would appreciate learning about "A Third Way", and possibly becoming supporters also. 

We've been editing some of the tapes we've shot of Nahum Pachenik, who was born in the settlement of Kiryat Arba (and so has lived all his life in the West Bank). Nahum's great-grandfather was killed in the Holocaust, but he told me that "To feel like a victim is a choice. I choose instead to be good neighbors with everyone around me". More on Nahum in the next update. I'm putting in a still at the bottom: Nahum, his daughter, and a Palestinian friend.

We're all in this together, and I look forward to meeting many of you at our future screenings. Thanks in advance for going the extra mile, and helping tell the story of courageous individuals living in a place that may someday fully live up to its name: the Holy Land.

Salaam-shalom from Jerusalem,

Harvey Stein
