I had outstanding service from Israel-Catalog.com. I had several questions before purchasing the item, and they were answered clearly, promptly, and courteously. During the shipment, I received notices regarding the tracking, assuring me that Israel-Catalog.com was on top of the matter. The item (Hebrew-English dictionary) arrived in pristine condition.

Won Award for Photography at the Haifa Film Festival 2007
Elio is set to be released from prison in two weeks when he finds out that his brother Meir was killed on the streets of South Tel Aviv in a gang fight. He determines to complete two tasks. The first is to honor his dead brother with a "maftir" [extra afternoon service on Shabbat and Jewish Holidays] prayer in the synagogue, and the second task is to revenge his death.
But the streets of Tel Aviv are a world of violence, power and intrigue, and nothing is what it appears to be. Elio returns home and find himself involved in a three way war between the corrupted local police, the Israeli mafia and the Russian mafia over control of the illegal gambling establishments. They all want something from Elio that only he can provide. Even his best friend, Shimi, sells him out, another traitorous act that has yet to be repaid in this story about friendship, loyalty and treason.
