  • - ERICK STAKELBECK: AND WELCOME TO THE WATCHMAN FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:19.170
  • THIS CITY TODAY IS THE HEARTBEAT OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:01:19.190 --> 00:01:22.210
  • JUST AS IT WAS DURING THE TIMES OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:26.000
  • JERUSALEM IS VIBRANT, DIVERSE, FAST PACED.
  • 00:01:26.020 --> 00:01:29.240
  • IT'S HOME TO THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT TO
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:33.100
  • FOOD AND CULTURE AND A BOOMING HIGH TECH SCENE
  • 00:01:33.120 --> 00:01:36.210
  • THAT WE'LL SHOW YOU A BIT LATER.
  • 00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:38.170
  • BUT ABOVE ALL JERUSALEM IS HOLY.
  • 00:01:38.190 --> 00:01:41.280
  • IT'S THE CITY WHERE GOD ALMIGHTY SAYS
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:44.130
  • HE HAS WRITTEN HIS NAME FOREVER AND THAT HE HAS GIVEN
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:47.250
  • TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS THEIR ONE
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:49.240
  • AND ONLY ANCIENT AND ANCESTRAL CAPITAL.
  • 00:01:49.260 --> 00:01:52.280
  • JERUSALEM TODAY IS BREAKING TOURISM RECORDS.
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:56.070
  • EVERY DAY, MORE AND MORE BELIEVERS ARE DRAWN HERE.
  • 00:01:56.090 --> 00:02:00.060
  • FOLKS, GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING IN GOD'S CITY.
  • 00:02:00.080 --> 00:02:04.290
  • AND YET, JUST 75 YEARS AGO ALL OF THIS SEEMED IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:11.030
  • JUST ASK IRVING ROTH. IN 1945 HE WAS A STARVING BOY
  • 00:02:11.050 --> 00:02:16.080
  • IMPRISONED IN THE HELLISH CONFINES
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:18.240
  • OF THE AUSCHWITZ DEATH CAMP.
  • 00:02:18.260 --> 00:02:20.230
  • JERUSALEM MUST HAVE SEEMED COMPLETELY UNREACHABLE THEN
  • 00:02:20.250 --> 00:02:24.070
  • LIKE SOME DISTANT DREAM, YET IRVING SURVIVED AUSCHWITZ
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:28.180
  • AND HAS GONE ON TO BECOME ONE OF ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM'S
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:32.120
  • MOST ELOQUENT AND COURAGEOUS ADVOCATES.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:35.130
  • HIS STORY IS A MIRACLE FROM TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH.
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:39.050
  • AND HE SHARED IT WITH US RECENTLY, AT THE VERY SCENE
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:42.180
  • OF HIS GREATEST HARDSHIP, AUSCHWITZ BIRKENAU.
  • 00:02:42.200 --> 00:02:47.080
  • [SOFT MUSIC]
  • 00:02:47.100 --> 00:03:00.030
  • [SOFT MUSIC]
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:07.190
  • WE'RE AT A VERY SIGNIFICANT PLACE.
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:09.070
  • THIS IS ONE OF THE ACTUAL CATTLE CARS THAT WERE USED
  • 00:03:09.090 --> 00:03:12.240
  • TO BRING PRISONERS, JEWISH PRISONERS HERE TO AUSCHWITZ.
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:17.090
  • YOU WERE IN ONE OF THESE CATTLE CARS.
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:20.230
  • CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:22.100
  • WHICH WAS A PRETTY HORRIBLE ONE?
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:24.200
  • - IT IS BECAUSE I WAS RELATIVELY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:28.020
  • THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS.
  • 00:03:28.040 --> 00:03:30.070
  • AND OF COURSE, THERE ARE NO PLACE TO SIT.
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:32.090
  • NOT ENOUGH ROOM FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THERE,
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:35.100
  • PROBABLY 100 PEOPLE NOT ENOUGH ROOM.
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:37.100
  • - IN THIS LITTLE CATTLE CAR, ONE OF THESE?
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:39.030
  • - YES.
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:39.280
  • - 100 PEOPLE?
  • 00:03:40.000 --> 00:03:40.270
  • - NOT ENOUGH FOR EVERYBODY TO SIT.
  • 00:03:40.290 --> 00:03:42.130
  • SO SOME OF THE PEOPLE HAD TO STAND AND SOME SIT ALTERNATING,
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:46.000
  • THE OTHER PIECE, OF COURSE, THREE DAYS
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:48.140
  • YOU HAVE BODILY FUNCTIONS.
  • 00:03:48.160 --> 00:03:50.030
  • THERE ARE NO TOILETS HERE, THERE IS NO RUNNING WATER.
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:52.210
  • - WERE THERE ANY STOPS SO YOU CAN RELIEVE YOURSELF?
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:54.220
  • - WELL, WHAT WE DID IS RELIEVE OURSELVES INSIDE.
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:57.210
  • WE HAD TWO BUCKETS, ONE TO RELIEVE YOURSELF
  • 00:03:57.230 --> 00:04:00.230
  • AND ONE FOR FRESHWATER.
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:02.120
  • AND EVERY SO OFTEN WE WERE ALLOWED TO,
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:04.220
  • THEY WILL OPEN UP THE DOOR JUST ENOUGH
  • 00:04:04.240 --> 00:04:07.160
  • NOT TO BREAK THE SEAL, BUT BE ABLE TO GET RID OF THE REFUSE
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:10.290
  • AND MAYBE GET SOME WATER.
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:12.130
  • - AND THEY'RE BARKING AT YOU
  • 00:04:12.150 --> 00:04:13.140
  • THE WHOLE TIME - CONSTANTLY.
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:14.220
  • THERE WAS CONSTANTLY HARASSMENT.
  • 00:04:14.240 --> 00:04:17.020
  • REALLY. - YEAH.
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:18.120
  • - EVENTUALLY I WAS ASSIGNED TO WORK WITH HORSES,
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:22.110
  • WORK HORSES, AND THE JOB THAT I HAD WAS TO DRAIN THE SWAMPS
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:26.240
  • AND PLOW THE FIELDS AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:04:26.260 --> 00:04:28.110
  • SO NEW ARABLE LAND COULD BE CREATED, AND THAT'S WHAT I DID,
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:32.040
  • WHICH IN ITSELF WAS VERY HARD WORK
  • 00:04:32.060 --> 00:04:33.220
  • FROM EARLY MORNING TO LATE AT NIGHT.
  • 00:04:33.240 --> 00:04:35.170
  • THE DISADVANTAGE WAS THAT THE HOURS WERE LONGER.
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:38.190
  • THE WAY IT WORKS IS YOU HAD TO PUT IN
  • 00:04:38.210 --> 00:04:41.090
  • FROM LET'S SAY SIX O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:42.290
  • TILL SIX O'CLOCK AT NIGHT TO ACTUALLY PLOW THE FIELDS.
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:45.210
  • BUT THE HORSES ARE IN PASTURE, DURING THE NIGHT.
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:48.180
  • YOU HAVE TO GET THEM, YOU HAVE TO BRING THEM,
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:50.030
  • YOU HAVE TO FEED THEM, - YEAH.
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:51.100
  • - YOU HAVE TO CLEAN THEM AND ALL THIS OTHER STUFF.
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:53.060
  • SO THE DAYS WAS LONGER, BUT THE ADVANTAGE WAS
  • 00:04:53.080 --> 00:04:55.170
  • THAT ON OCCASION, YOU'RE ABLE TO
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:58.230
  • SUPPLEMENT YOUR DIET.
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:01.010
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:02.080
  • - WHICH CONSISTS OF BASICALLY OF A BLACK,
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:05.090
  • I WAS GOING TO SAY COFFEE, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE STARBUCKS
  • 00:05:05.110 --> 00:05:08.060
  • WOULD BE VERY UPSET IF I CALL THAT COFFEE,
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:10.000
  • [ERICK LAUGHS]
  • 00:05:10.020 --> 00:05:11.070
  • IN THE MORNING AND THAT WAS THE BREAKFAST.
  • 00:05:11.090 --> 00:05:12.150
  • AT NOON, GENERALLY IT WAS SOUP, MOSTLY CABBAGE.
  • 00:05:12.170 --> 00:05:15.290
  • AND AT NIGHT WE WOULD GET SOME BREAD CONSISTING REALLY
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:19.000
  • OF SOMETHING WHICH NOBODY COULDN'T
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:20.100
  • HAVE THREE OR FOUR SLICES OF BREAD.
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:22.180
  • - I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW MUCH WEIGHT
  • 00:05:22.200 --> 00:05:23.280
  • YOU LOST BEING HERE OBVIOUSLY.
  • 00:05:24.000 --> 00:05:25.170
  • - THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH WHAT HAPPENED, OF COURSE,
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:29.030
  • BUT IT WAS CALCULATED THAN A DIET OF THAT NATURE,
  • 00:05:29.050 --> 00:05:31.220
  • WHICH IS A COUPLE OF 300 CALORIES A DAY.
  • 00:05:31.240 --> 00:05:34.100
  • - 300 CALORIES PER DAY?
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:36.020
  • - YEAH, A HUMAN BODY CAN SUBSIST ON THE RESERVE.
  • 00:05:36.040 --> 00:05:40.080
  • SO THEY HAD SOMETHING CALLED SELECTIONS.
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:43.160
  • JUST LIKE THE FRUIT WHEN YOU ARRIVED HERE,
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:45.050
  • THERE WAS A SELECTION, 90% TO THE GAS CHAMBER
  • 00:05:45.070 --> 00:05:48.200
  • AND 10% OR 15% TO WORK.
  • 00:05:48.220 --> 00:05:50.290
  • - YOU WERE YOUNG AND HEALTHY?
  • 00:05:51.010 --> 00:05:52.180
  • - I WAS YOUNG AND HEALTHY, I WAS TALL AS I AM NOW,
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:55.070
  • AND BUT THEY HAD ADDITIONAL SELECTIONS.
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:58.110
  • AND THE WAY THAT WORKED, HE WOULD COME BACK FROM WORK
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:00.220
  • MUCH DIRECTLY TO TAKE A SHOWER.
  • 00:06:00.240 --> 00:06:02.190
  • YOU WOULD GET UNDRESSED, AND MARCH INTO THE SHOWER.
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:06.000
  • AND WHY DO WE INVITE YOU INTO THE SHOWER ON THE OTHER SIDE,
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:09.050
  • A DOCTOR IN UNIFORM AND LOOK AT YOU FOR AN INSTANT OF TIME
  • 00:06:09.070 --> 00:06:13.200
  • AND DETERMINE IF YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO LIVE.
  • 00:06:13.220 --> 00:06:16.260
  • HE WOULD LOOK AT THE NUMBER, IF HE WROTE DOWN YOUR NUMBER
  • 00:06:16.280 --> 00:06:19.210
  • NEXT MORNING YOU WERE IN THE GAS CHAMBER.
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:23.070
  • - LIKE THAT THIS MAN, THIS NAZI DOCTOR
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:26.070
  • HAD THE POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH.
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:27.180
  • - THAT'S CORRECT, THAT'S CORRECT.
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:29.200
  • ABOUT OF COURSE YOU KNOW THE WAR IS GOING ON
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:31.090
  • BY NOW IT'S JANUARY OF 1945.
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:34.040
  • THE RUSSIAN ARMY IS GETTING CLOSER AND DEFINITELY PORTENDS
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:38.090
  • TO MAYBE, MAYBE, UNFORTUNATELY ON THE 18TH OF JANUARY
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:44.100
  • THE STILL LIVING OR EXISTING I SHOULD SAY OR BREATHING,
  • 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:49.220
  • ABOUT 60.000 PRISONERS THAT ARE STILL ALIVE,
  • 00:06:49.240 --> 00:06:53.010
  • AND WE MARCHED DOWN ON THE DEATH MARCH.
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:55.050
  • - SO YOU WERE MARCHED OUT?
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:56.140
  • - MARCHED OUT. - IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:57.280
  • WITH BARELY ANY CLOTHES AND NO FOOD OR WATER.
  • 00:06:58.000 --> 00:07:01.040
  • - AND WOODEN CLOGS.
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:04.160
  • AND FOR THREE DAYS, AND PARTIALLY THREE NIGHTS,
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:09.050
  • WE MARCHED ON THE GUARD.
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:11.040
  • HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WERE SHOT ON THE WAY.
  • 00:07:11.060 --> 00:07:15.210
  • BECAUSE THEY SET THE PACE. THE GUARDS WALKED WITH,
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:19.240
  • MARCHED WITH US FOR TWO HOURS, AND FOR FOUR HOURS THEY WILL RIDE.
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:23.190
  • WE MARCHED CONTINUOUSLY.
  • 00:07:23.210 --> 00:07:25.270
  • SO PEOPLE STOP, SLOW DOWN, AND THE REASON IT'S CALLED
  • 00:07:25.290 --> 00:07:28.240
  • THE DEATH MARCH IS BECAUSE IF YOU DIDN'T CONTINUE MARCHING
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:31.220
  • AT THE PACE THEY SET, YOU WERE DEAD.
  • 00:07:31.240 --> 00:07:35.010
  • - PEOPLE WERE DROPPING LEFT AND RIGHT
  • 00:07:35.030 --> 00:07:36.120
  • AND BEING SHOT CONSTANTLY?
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:37.160
  • - ABSOLUTELY, AND YOU CAN IMAGINE
  • 00:07:37.180 --> 00:07:39.150
  • HERE I'M TIRED AND HUNGRY AND COLD.
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:42.060
  • AND I WOULD COMPLAIN TO MY BROTHER WHO'S
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:45.060
  • MARCHING BESIDE ME, AND OF COURSE, HIS COMMENT WAS ALWAYS,
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:48.200
  • "DON'T CONCENTRATE ON PHYSICAL THINGS, BE MORE SPIRITUAL."
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:55.200
  • I'M HUNGRY.
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:57.240
  • HE WOULD SAY, "WHY DON'T YOU SAY A PSALM?"
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:08:00.210
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THEM BY HEART.
  • 00:08:00.230 --> 00:08:02.280
  • MY BROTHER DID.
  • 00:08:03.000 --> 00:08:05.090
  • AND IN FACT, I WILL REPEAT AFTER HIM.
  • 00:08:05.110 --> 00:08:07.190
  • AND IN MANY WAYS I COULD SAY IT HELPED
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:12.170
  • THE BODY FORGET THE PHYSICAL PAIN AND CONTINUE MARCHING.
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:20.180
  • AND FINALLY AFTER THREE DAYS WE WERE PUT INTO OPEN CARS,
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:24.150
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINTER AND FINALLY WE ARRIVED
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:26.140
  • IN A NEW PLACE CALLED BUCHENWALD.
  • 00:08:26.160 --> 00:08:29.020
  • NOW BUCHENWALD IS A CONCENTRATION CAMP BUILT IN 1937
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:33.140
  • FOR 5000 PRISONERS, WHEN I ARRIVED THERE,
  • 00:08:33.160 --> 00:08:36.250
  • THEY WERE CLOSE TO 60.000
  • 00:08:36.270 --> 00:08:39.190
  • SAME FACILITIES MORE OR LESS,
  • 00:08:39.210 --> 00:08:41.250
  • AND THE SAME AMOUNT OF FOOD.
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:44.090
  • SO HERE WAS DIFFERENT.
  • 00:08:44.110 --> 00:08:47.080
  • IF YOU GOT A BOILED POTATO EVERY SECOND OR THIRD DAY,
  • 00:08:47.100 --> 00:08:49.270
  • YOU WERE A VERY LUCKY PERSON.
  • 00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:53.130
  • AND ONE DAY MY BROTHER WAS TAKEN AWAY.

  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:40.170
  • A LOT OF TIMES THEY THINK OF ANCIENT JERUSALEM,
  • 00:12:40.190 --> 00:12:42.270
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE HERE THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD.
  • 00:12:42.290 --> 00:12:44.280
  • THESE ARE ANCIENT ROCKS,

  • - WE'RE A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:12:55.130
  • AND WE WERE ESTABLISHED IN 2012,
  • 00:12:55.150 --> 00:12:58.010
  • IN ORDER TO SPECIFICALLY BUILD THE JERUSALEM TECH
  • 00:12:58.030 --> 00:13:00.190
  • AND STARTUP ECOSYSTEM.
  • 00:13:00.210 --> 00:13:02.110
  • SO REALLY FROM THE LATE 90S TO 2012, SEVEN YEARS AGO,
  • 00:13:02.130 --> 00:13:05.220
  • AND APART FROM IRONICALLY A COUPLE OF REALLY BIG COMPANIES,
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:09.000
  • SUCH AS MOBILEYE AND NDS, WHICH WAS INSIDE THE COMPANY
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:11.210
  • THAT WERE GROWING, THERE WASN'T MUCH OF A SMALL STARTUP,
  • 00:13:11.230 --> 00:13:14.190
  • SMALLER STARTUP ECOSYSTEM.
  • 00:13:14.210 --> 00:13:16.030
  • THERE WERE ONLY ABOUT 100 STARTUPS IN THE CITY.
  • 00:13:16.050 --> 00:13:18.190
  • AND SO IN 2012, A FEW PEOPLE YOU KNOW, NIR BARKAT
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:21.260
  • WAS ONE OF THEM AND SAID, LET'S DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

  • WE ALREADY KIND OF HAD AN ECOSYSTEM.

  • HERE, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE GREAT RESEARCH FROM THE UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:42.250
  • WE HAD SOME SUCCESSFUL STARTUPS.
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:44.260
  • WE HAD SOME EVENTS BUT WHAT WE DID WAS,
  • 00:13:44.280 --> 00:13:47.050
  • WE CONNECTED EVERYONE, THAT'S WHAT WE ARE.
  • 00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:48.290
  • WE'RE KIND OF A PLATFORM THAT CONNECTS THE DOTS.
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:51.010
  • WE SPECIFICALLY BRING HUNDREDS OF GROUPS HERE,
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:53.070
  • AND IN THE MORNING, THEY'LL GO AND SEE THE OLD CITY
  • 00:13:53.090 --> 00:13:55.100
  • AND AFTERNOON, THEY'LL COME AND SEE STARTUPS
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:57.190
  • AND HEAR ABOUT WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON IN THE TECH SCENE.
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:13:59.220
  • AND IT'S REALLY BECOMING SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE DOES NOW
  • 00:13:59.240 --> 00:14:03.100
  • WHEN THEY COME HERE, THEY DON'T JUST GO TO TEL AVIV
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:05.230
  • AND SEE THE NORTH OF ISRAEL AND THE SOUTH TO SEE STARTUPS,
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:08.130
  • BUT THEY'LL ALSO COME TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:14:08.150 --> 00:14:10.040
  • AND THAT'S WHY IT REALLY IS
  • 00:14:10.060 --> 00:14:12.030
  • ALL IN ALL, A STARTUP NATION.
  • 00:14:12.050 --> 00:14:13.270
  • - THAT'S SO COOL, BECAUSE PEOPLE CAN COME HERE
  • 00:14:13.290 --> 00:14:15.220
  • AND THEY CAN FEEL THE HISTORY, THE HISTORY OF THEIR FAITH,
  • 00:14:15.240 --> 00:14:18.020
  • THE HISTORY OF JERUSALEM,
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:19.120
  • WHICH IS THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN MANY WAYS.
  • 00:14:19.140 --> 00:14:21.050
  • BUT YOU CAN ALSO LOOK AHEAD WHEN YOU COME HERE
  • 00:14:21.070 --> 00:14:23.060
  • AND SEE THESE EXCITING THINGS.
  • 00:14:23.080 --> 00:14:24.170
  • JERUSALEM HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INNOVATIVE PLACE

  • GOING BACK 3000 YEARS AT TIMES OF THE FIRST TEMPLE.
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:29.030

  • GO OVER THE WHOLE VISUAL FIELD,

  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:31.230
  • WHICH LETTER IS IT AND COMBINE THEM INTO WORDS
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:34.150

  • WHICH IS AGAIN HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:20:43.060 --> 00:20:45.080
  • THAT THEY CAN FIGURE IT OUT ROUGHLY BUT
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:49.290
  • IT BECOMES A JUMBLE OF DETAILS.
  • 00:20:50.010 --> 00:20:53.070
  • AND WE WORKED VERY, VERY HARD TO CREATE TECHNOLOGY
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:56.190
  • THAT ENABLES A DEVICE AND A DEVICE
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:58.230

  • THAT JOY THEY HAVE OF, OH, CAN FINALLY READ,
  • 00:21:05.020 --> 00:21:07.270
  • NOT TECHNICALLY READ AS WE USED TO THINK,
  • 00:21:07.290 --> 00:21:10.190
  • I CAN FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:21:10.210 --> 00:21:13.080
  • WE'VE QUITE A FEW STUDENTS HERE IN IN ISRAEL

  • THAT USE OUR DEVICE AND WE HAVE,
  • 00:21:17.010 --> 00:21:19.050
  • I THINK WE ACCOMPLISHED TWO MASTERS AND ONE PHD,
  • 00:21:19.070 --> 00:21:23.130
  • THAT USE THIS DEVICE TO READ LOTS OF TEXT
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:26.130
  • AND STUDY AND LEARN AND BE CREATIVE AND FULFILL THEIR DREAM
  • 00:21:26.150 --> 00:21:30.130
  • OF GETTING HIGHER EDUCATION.
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:32.250
  • A KID WITH LOW VISION NEEDS TO LOOK AT A FRIEND, A PEER
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:37.120
  • AND KNOW WHO THEY ARE, SO WE ADDED
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:40.260
  • THIS FUNCTIONALITY AS WELL.
  • 00:21:40.280 --> 00:21:42.030

  • IT'LL TELL YOU THEIR NAME.
  • 00:21:43.270 --> 00:21:45.080
  • IF IT'S A NEW PERSON, YOU CAN TEACH IN
  • 00:21:45.100 --> 00:21:47.250
  • ABOUT 10 SECONDS IT TAKES TO TEACH A NEW PERSON
  • 00:21:47.270 --> 00:21:50.250
  • AND AS SOON AS THEY COME INTO SIGHT,
  • 00:21:50.270 --> 00:21:52.230
  • THE DEVICE WILL TELL THEM THE NAME.
  • 00:21:52.250 --> 00:21:55.010
  • WE HAVE A CUSTOMER WHO TWEETED, I'VE NEVER MET HIM
  • 00:21:55.030 --> 00:21:58.110
  • BUT HE TWEETED, EVER SINCE I GOT THE MYEYE,
  • 00:21:58.130 --> 00:22:02.230
  • I STARTED TRYING OTHER TYPES OF FOOD.
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:05.100
  • AND APPARENTLY HE HAD ONLY ONE TYPE OF FROZEN FOOD
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.290
  • IN HIS FREEZER AND HE WOULD TAKE IT OUT.
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:10.050
  • HE KNOWS HE PUTS IT FIVE MINUTES IN THE MICROWAVE,
  • 00:22:10.070 --> 00:22:13.230
  • OPENS IT AND HE KNOWS WHAT TO EXPECT.
  • 00:22:13.250 --> 00:22:15.250
  • BUT NOW THAT HE CAN READ HE CAN GET SOMETHING
  • 00:22:15.270 --> 00:22:18.000
  • OUT OF THE FREEZER, FIGURE IT OUT WHAT IT IS,
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:20.160
  • KNOW HOW TO PREPARE IT AND PREPARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FOODS
  • 00:22:20.180 --> 00:22:23.290
  • AND THIS IS EVERYDAY QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEOPLE
  • 00:22:24.010 --> 00:22:26.220
  • THAT YOU CAN'T GET IN ANY OTHER WAY.

  • AND IT IS ONE THAT I BELIEVE HAS BROUGHT US BLESSING
  • 00:22:48.130 --> 00:22:51.180
  • AND BOUNTY FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:22:51.200 --> 00:22:53.110
  • - BUT THERE'S A BOND AND WE'RE TIED TO ISRAEL
  • 00:22:53.130 --> 00:22:57.070
  • AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:57.090 --> 00:22:59.010
  • THEY ARE THE BEACON OF HOPE AND DEMOCRACY
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:02.080
  • IN WHAT IS A VERY BAD NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:23:02.100 --> 00:23:04.170
  • - I WOULD ARGUE THAT IF THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 00:23:04.190 --> 00:23:06.040
  • HAD MORE FREE ENTERPRISE PRO-AMERICAN DEMOCRACY,
  • 00:23:06.060 --> 00:23:09.180
  • THAT THERE ARE MORE COUNTRIES LIKE THAT IN THE MIDDLE EAST,
  • 00:23:09.200 --> 00:23:12.100
  • THE WORLD WOULD BE A LOT SAFER THAN IT IS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:23:12.120 --> 00:23:14.280

  • OF THE MIDDLE EAST, INDEED FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD.
  • 00:23:16.290 --> 00:23:19.230
  • - AND THE WHY, BEGINS WITH THE FACT THAT ISRAEL
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:22.230
  • IS THE ONLY PRO-AMERICAN FREE ENTERPRISE DEMOCRACY
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:25.230
  • IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:23:25.250 --> 00:23:27.060
  • THAT IN AND OF ITSELF IS A REASON TO SUPPORT THEM STRONGLY.
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:30.030
  • - THE PROTECTOR OF ISRAEL NEITHER SLUMBERS NOR SLEEPS,
  • 00:23:30.050 --> 00:23:34.030
