NYC's Israeli Ambassador and Dr. Ruth

Dani Dayan, Israel's Ambassador in NY and Dr Ruth, the famous sex therapist and former Haganah sharpshooter came together to support the documentary film "The Secret Beneath the Hill".

The movie, now in development, tells the story of the Ayalon bullet factory from 1947-49 in Rehovet outside of the Tel Aviv.  Film makers have tracked down the last of the original workers who helped turn the tide during Israel's War of Independence.  For two years these brave teenagers manufactured ammo 8 meters underground, in a bunker hidden by a laundry facility.  All told more than 2 million bullets were produced and smuggled to freedom fighters around the country. 

The documentary celebrates their deeds and the dangerous times in which they lived..  The goal is to have the film finished by 2018 in time for Israel's 70th anniversary.
