Just in time for the Jewish High Holidays! Wolf to premiere "Restoring Your Tomorrow", the companion series to his acclaimed documentary, "Restoring Tomorrow".
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2017
Industry pioneer Michael Jay Solomon, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Truli Media Group, Inc. and Aaron Wolf, co-Founder of Howling Wolf Productions, announced their plans to debut Wolf’s new original series Restoring Your Tomorrow on Truli.com, Solomon’s OTT platform that distributes faith and family friendly content to a global audience. Restoring Your Tomorrow is the companion series to Wolf’s feature documentary, Restoring Tomorrow, which is distributed by Seventh Art and currently on a city-by-city tour of the US.
Michael Jay Solomon and Aaron Wolf (grandson of Rabbi Alfred Wolf, of Wilshire Boulevard Temple), have close ties to the history and legacy represented by Restoring Tomorrow. The film tells the extraordinary story of filmmaker Aaron Wolf as he rediscovers his faith, family and roots as his childhood temple fights for survival in this universal story of hope. Built in 1929, the restoration of this treasured Hollywood landmark, spearheaded by Senior Rabbi Steve Leder, was a massive undertaking spanning six years and costing $150 million dollars. The revitalization project was also reflected in the surrounding neighborhoods, as many nearby communities benefit from the social and community outreach services provided by Wilshire Boulevard Temple. The film has received extensive coverage in publications such as The Los Angeles Times, Variety, Tablet Magazine, Guideposts and The Times of Israel.
The story continues with Restoring Your Tomorrow as Aaron Wolf documents his travels to communities around the US that are falling apart and demonstrates that Americans can still come together across generational, religious, racial and social lines. As the Jewish high holidays approach, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and now, this new series, Restoring Your Tomorrow, we encourage audiences to look beyond their immediate present and reflect on their community’s future and the future of all communities around them. Wolf shared, “During the release of Restoring Tomorrow, I have traveled around the country and discovered there are similar dramatic stories unfolding in communities large and small, much like my own, with so many people in need of their own personal "restoration". Going on these adventures with these real-life stories of potential demise and hopeful rebirth is the heart and soul of the Restoring Your Tomorrow series”.
Mr. Solomon congratulates Aaron and his team on the resounding success of the feature documentary, Restoring Tomorrow. He states, “I am very pleased to collaborate with Aaron on this new inspirational project.” “Restoring Your Tomorrow is not just the story of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, it is potentially the story of all communities of faith, and one that should inspire them to renew the spiritual and social impact they have in their own neighborhoods. Additionally, this project is very special to me as Wilshire is not only my personal place of worship, but I also have the great honor of calling Rabbi Steve Leder my dear friend. Recognizing his accomplishments, leadership, and vision, is my great pleasure”.
