Longing For Tomorrow

Following the fall of the Soviet Union, Jewish Russian immigrants began arriving to Israel daily by the hundreds.  Alice Neiman arrived in Israel on October 26th, 1990, at the age of twenty with 750 others seeking a new life. A decade later, she  examines to what extent the hopes and fears of some of those who arrived with her on that day have been fulfilled. Alice’s story provides a panoramic backdrop for the journeys of thousands and forms a larger story within the landscape of Israeli events. Funny, emotional, and at times heart-wrenching stories of the people she meets reach deeply into the history of Israel during a decade beginning with the Gulf War and leading up to the shattering events of the second Intifada.
