The complete 13-part cable network series that asks the powerful question: Is Israel the place of miracles? Modern day Israel is truly a divine wonder of the current age. How has it trumphed through four major wars and survived relentless terrorist attacks? Meet the actual people who lived through what can only be described as miracles of Biblical proportions, and share their remarkable stories in this 13-episode series. Even cynics will be challenged by this extraordinary journey through Israel's turbulent history to explore incredible documented stories which helped create and preserve modern Israel. This stirring 13-part live-action series dramatizes awe-inspiring incidents that pose the question: Does a divine power continue to uphold the country? Disc 1: Episodes 1-3 Ep. 1 The Assignment: Journalist Michael Greenspan (CNN) accepts an intriguing assignment to investigate recorded instances of supernatural phenomena which helped create and preserve modern Israel. Greenspan meets Yom Kippur War tank commander David Yaniv, who recalls how he and his men were miraculously saved when a mysterious wind exposed thousands of explosives in the minefield in which they were stranded. Ep. 2 Miracle at Michmash : Michael Greenspan investigates two battles that occurred at Michmash 2,000 years apart. During World War I, British Major Vivian Gilbert is sent to rout the Turkish garrison in an assault on Jericho. The night before, he reads the Biblical account of Saul and Jonathan, who, in 1050 B.C., were camped in the same place, facing a garrison of 30,000 Philistines. Gilbert follows their unorthodox battle plan, leading to improbable victory. Ep. 3 Shula - The Girl Who Became a Spy : In this powerful episode, Michael Greenspan meets 85-year-old Shula Cohen, who became a spy for Israel in 1948 in Beirut, where her access to Lebanese and Syrian social circles gave her unprecedented access to vital intelligence information. She endures seven years of imprisonment, torture, and abuse before a prisoner exchange in the aftermath of the Six-Day War frees her. Disc 2: Episodes 4-6 Ep. 4 The Miracle of Survival - Hitler and the Holocaust: Michael Greenspan visits the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum outside Jerusalem, where he reflects on the history and legacy of one of the most devastating events in history. Nobel Prize-winner Elie Wiesel is featured in this moving episode that honors those whose sacrifice made the miracle of modern Israel possible. EP. 5 A Boy Named Ezra: This compelling episode dramatizes the incredible story of Ezra Yakhin, who, as a teenager, joined freedom fighters resisting the British occupation of Palestine. His mother prays that her son will never be seen by enemy soldiers. To his amazement, Ezra miraculously escapes detection by the British, time and again. This episode also chronicles the obstacles that stood in the way of the establishment of a Jewish homeland in the years before 1948. EP. 6 The Miracle of '48: Israels founding Prime Minister David Ben Gurion once said, To live in Israel without believing in miracles is not practical. In this stirring episode, Michael Greenspan interviews freedom fighters and war veterans who recount Israels triumph against all odds in its war for independence from the British and the Arab enemies determined to destroy the new homeland. Disc 3: Episodes 7-9 EP. 7 1967: Whether or not one believes in miracles, Israels stunning victory in the Six-Day War was certainly against all odds. This inspiring episode contains dramatizations of stories associated with the return of Jerusalem to Jewish hands for the first time since its fall to the Romans in 70 A.D. Among them is a remarkable account of how an outnumbered Israeli squad is saved when enemy troops flee after claiming to see the spirit of Abraham. EP. 8 A Warrior Named Kahalani: The Yom Kippur War of 1973 was the ultimate David and Goliath story, as Israel faced certain annihilation from a coalition of Arab forces led by Egypt and Syria. Avigdor Kahalani, one of Israels most decorated and beloved war heroes, shares his own incredible stories of survival and miraculous victory. This moving program climaxes with an emotional visit by Michael Greenspan to the Memorial Wall of Remembrance at the Armored Corps Museum at Latrun. EP. 9 The People of the Book Come Home: Some miracles are so big they can only be appreciated when viewed across a sweep of history. One of these is the gathering of Jewish people from around the world to recreate Israel as a sovereign nation after more than 2,000 years in exile. Israeli citizens share firsthand knowledge about what it means to live in the land of their forefathers. Rabbi Israel Lau describes the sense of coming home, with his own story of survival from the Holocaust, and Russian Jews reflect on their escape from the tyranny of Communism. Disc 4: Episodes 10-12 EP. 10 A Place of Miracles: Is Israel a place of miracles? From ordinary Israeli citizens to Israel Lau, the chief rabbi of Tel Aviv, Michael Greenspan continues his investigation into whether Israels survival is the result of human courage, foresight and wisdom, or the work of God. EP. 11 Myths or Miracles?: Strange beings wielding flaming swords foil marauding Arabs in their attempt to destroy a Jewish community. Thousands of storks suddenly appear to devour locusts plaguing a farming village. These are not stories from the Bible. They reportedly happened in 20th century Israel!

EP. 12 Rescue at Entebbe: Scenes from the Oscar-nominated film, Operation Thunderbolt dramatize the harrowing 1976 hostage crisis when Arab terrorists seized Air France Flight 139.
