Rationale: To provide English speakers living in Israel access to programs on community services, people of interest, ESRA news, events and current affairs, in the English language.
ESRAvision is the highly innovative, popular, and informative Community TV program shown weekly on cable and satellite TV in Israel. Its objective is to produce video programs in English to broaden and extend the knowledge of English speakers about many aspects of life in Israel and help them to become more active in the civic, social, and cultural life of the State.

ESRA volunteers are trained to do Community TV program production (new courses are held periodically), and funds are raised for the purchase of equipment and supplies, and for the cost of production of the films. ESRAvision programs are broadcast in English throughout Israel by HOT and YES, and throughout the Middle East via METV.
ESRAvision programs give viewers an general picture of life in Israel as well as articles on ESRA's specific projects in the community and other activities.
These programs, although aimed at the English speaking population, also attract immigrants from non-English speaking countries such as the F.S.U, Ethiopia and India, as well as veteran Hebrew-speaking Israelis.
ESRAvision Programs developed by ESRA volunteers include the following categories - Community projects, Arts (music, dance, theater), ESRA projects, sports, profiles of personalities, books & authors, hobbies/leisure, professions, health and more. Programs change every four weeks.
