Set in Vienna in 1938 and in London during the Blitz, The Pianist of Willesden Lane is based on the true story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist who is dreaming about her concert debut at Vienna’s renowned Musikverein Concert Hall, when the war breaks out.

On The Map

A special screening in Raanana of this great film on December 19th. ON THE MAP combines the pulse-pounding action of a high-stakes basketball game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War to deliver a film that honors Israeli heroes, mesmerizes fans of the game and captures the spirit of a nation triumphant and victorious against all odds. Call *8864 or 09 761 0380. Special Guest Tal Brody!

Broadway has arrived in Israel!

Well, kind of! These great musicals have been translated into Hebrew but everything about them takes you back to the West End or Broadway – the sets and the performances are all really superb and worth splashing out for a great evening!


Family shows!


LoveLoveIsrael tip 1 – your children will want to buy expensive light up toys that they always sell for these shows – stock up on these from your local Muzalim shop or shekel shop instead of buying them there but only give to the kids when you arrive! LoveLoveIsrael tip 2 – use this link to Hagadol for lists of all the possible discounts available via different cards and clubs you or your friends may belong to, so that you can avoid paying full price!
