Ruthie Shatz & Adi Barash
Lauded for their work as directors/producers of the Netflix original series "Lenox Hill," Ruthie Shatz and Adi Barash are longtime collaborators whose past films include the medical documentaries "Ichilov" and "Ambulance." Although the filmmakers finished filming "Lenox Hill" in November 2019, they were able to return to the iconic New York hospital at the start of the coronavirus pandemic for a special COVID-19 episode, which was released this summer.
Matti Leshem is co-founder of Weimaraner Republic Pictures and the founder of New Mandate Films, a film and television production company created to mine the rich depth of Jewish history, literature, and stories from the Bible to the present day. He is an ardent supporter of Israel and the arts, serving as a board member of the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
Kfir Gavrieli is the CEO and founder of Tieks, a world-leading women's fashion brand known for its Italian leather split-sole flat shoes. This year, Tieks launched Operation #Sewtogether in response to the coronavirus pandemic, a philanthropic campaign to mobilize the company’s resources and millions of fans to produce masks for frontline medial workers in hospitals facing extreme shortages. Through the campaign, Tieks helped produce over 1 million masks for essential workers.
