"Israel for Canadians" - unfortunate news

The "Israel for Canadians" documentary fundraising campaign on Kickstarter just concluded and, I'm sorry to say, fell well short of its target. So it won't get made. At least not this year and perhaps not exactly as described.

I'm very grateful to everyone who did back it. (Kickstarter being an "all or nothing" platform those who pledged through it won't get charged; you don't need to do anything. And I'll be in touch with those who contributed through other channels about refunds.) I'm also grateful to all those who worked to help publicize it, through social media and otherwise.

Over the next few months I'll be giving some thought to why the funding effort failed, from flaws in the fundraising campaign to defects in documentary design and presentation. I'm convinced the cause is important so I'm not by any means giving up on it. But I apologize to those whose hopes were raised by a project I wasn't able to make happen, at least this time.

Again, thanks very much to everyone who did back and help promote it.
