Issacharoff explained the intricacies of crafting the storyline as close to reality as possible, guided by his military service in covert operations in addition to conferring with influential Israeli and Arab leaders. In highlighting the multi-layered approach it takes to achieve the authenticity of scenes revolving around Middle East conflict and terrorism from casting, to filming onto editing, he emphasizes as Fauda means ‘chaos’ in Arabic, “This isn’t Hollywood. It’s different here. Tragic things happen.”
The global program with Avi Issacharoff was held under Women’s Division auspices, with New York co-chairs Liran Yechiel and Shira Lewis leading the virtual event. For information on Women’s Division activities and investing in Israel bonds, click here
