NHK News Story

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom everyone!

On October 15th I was interviewed by Japan’s #1 TV station – NHK. The crew and I also went to Jerusalem together, where they filmed me placing your prayers in the Western-Wall.

When they interviewed me on my home court, they wanted to show me ‘in action’ so they asked me interact with my followers on Twitter (which means, you!). The story was broadcasted a few weeks ago in Japan, and this is what the Japanese population saw:

If you look closely (click on any photo to enlarge), you’ll see me tweeting you guys and asking to say Hello to NHK TV.

Then, they showed your reactions:

and:

The NHK crew was completely surprised when they saw the dozens of tweets that greeted them hello. I think it’s pretty nice to see this interaction between you – the people who consume media and manufacture  “New Media” – and the “Old Media”, like the TV stories.

Here are a couple more pictures from that day:

Here you can see the end-result – The river of blue prayers inside the Western-Wall:

and here’s the camera-guy making sure he has this blue river on video for the Japanese people to see:

Thanks everyone for interacting with me in front of the cameras!

All the best from the Holy Land,

Yours,

Pictures from the Western Wall

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom all!
A couple of weeks ago I took another box full of your prayers to the Kotel (the Western Wall) and stashed them in the crevices of the Wall. Along with me was a crew of the Japanese TV station NHK. If you send your prayer between the 1st and the 14th of October – than your prayer is in these photos!
Here are some of the pictures I took, you can click your mouse button on any of them to enlarge:

All your prayers in a nice wooden box:

I love the way the prayers form a ‘blue river’ of paper:

Here’s the camera man making sure he has a good shot of the ‘river’:
