By RUTHIE BLUM LEIBOWITZ 'While 'Hatikva' may not the greatest piece of music," says Zamir Chorale Foundation founder and director Matthew (Mati) Lazar, "the power one feels singing it is undeniable." The long-time conductor and ardent Zionist goes on to ask rhetorically: "Who else but our people would have their national anthem in a minor key?"

Oh, and by the way, Red's a puppet - a loveable one at that. And a Zionist too, maybe. Welcome to the weird, wonderfully subversive world of Redband, a new 'mockumentary'...
