Synopsis

The story of the chief Rabbi of Copenhagen’s Jewish community, who would come to be known as Rabbi Doolittle. Arriving in Tel Aviv in 1935, Max Shorenstein left his honorable position, in order to fulfill a longtime dream: to build a zoo and teach the children of Palestine-Eretz Israel about the love of animals. His dream had come true and against all odds, the Tel Aviv Zoo became the city’s greatest attraction. Yet the envy, greed and corruption by city officials had him banished from the very paradise he himself built. It is a tale of a city raised from sand, only to become an international cultural and financial hub a century later, and the price that was paid for this exponential growth.
