Did you know that Israel has its own YouTube channel? We didn't until we discovered it today.
Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been collecting short videos that show aspects of the country that would surprise even its regular visitors.
It's dedicated to promoting diplomatic relations, economic growth and friendship between the State of Israel and the world.
We're adding this collection to our list of sources of fun videos to share with you, our growing family of subscribers. From time to time, we'll include some of them in our mix of jokes, funny incidents, nostalgic memories, satire, musical pleasures, and support for our belief that Israel is a Funny Country.
Matisyahu, the very popular Jewish reggae singer (with or without his beard and Chasidic garb) had a big hit with his song Sunshine. It's been picked up and redone with Israelis from all walks of life singing, dancing, and lip-synching its words as they demonstrate the variety and beauty of Israel, its sites and its people.
