Biking through the streets of downtown Jerusalem every day for several months, Eli Bass, 30, of Oak Park, Ill., noticed the frustrated line of bumper-to-bumper cars and buses lining the streets. In response, Bass worked at the Ma’aleh School of Film to create a five-minute documentary (available on YouTube) encouraging new, green methods of transportation in the millennia-old capitol.
