We may not all look the same, live in the same place or engage in the same level of
religious observance, but deep down inside, the Jewish nation shares a common bond
that unites us, that transcends distance and breaks boundaries.Â WeR1 shatters the
differences that divide us, focusing on the unshakeable connection shared by members
of the Jewish nation all across the globe.
“So many choose to focus on what sets people apart, but the truth is that our
commonalities are far greater than our differences,” observed director
WeR1 follows the story of two characters who could be every man or every woman.
Located in Israel and New York each leads a vastly different life, yet feels an inexorable
pull that drives them ever higher, an unidentified longing for something indefinable but
exalted.Â Set against a backdrop of music performed by Israeli superstar
Gad Elbaz, Australian singer songwriter DeScribe, American rapper Nissim, French
singer Israel Alliel, and British performer Refael Mirila, WeR1 is journey to
the highest heights, attainable only through unity.
Bringing together a significant talent pool that includes video production by Daniel
Finkelman and Elan Cohen, and music and lyrics by Los Angeles platinum songwriter
and producer DK Benjamin, WeR1 is an inspiring musical triumph that takes viewers on
a journey from London to Lyon to Tel Aviv and New York. Filling the heart and
warming the soul, WeR1, a project of Kesher Yehudi – an organization which bridges
the gap between secular and religious Jews – is a reminder to us all that now, as
always, we are truly one nation with one heart.
