Arab Labor: the complete first season( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Hebrew and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Fall 2008, Link TV presented the U.S. broadcast premiere of the controversial hit Israeli comedy series Arab Labor (Avoda Aravit). Created by Sayed Kashua, a 32-year-old Israeli-born Palestinian journalist, Arab Labor (translated from the Hebrew "Avoda Aravit" which colloquially implies "shoddy or second-rate work") focuses on Amjad, a Palestinian journalist and Israeli citizen in search of his identity as he seeks high status in the society into which he was born but where his car is searched everyday when he drives from his neighborhood to his job at a newspaper in Jerusalem. Poking fun at the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious, cultural and political differences to daringly depict the mixed society that is Israel. This show marked a milestone on Israeli television as the first program to present Palestinian characters speaking Arabic on primetime. Arab Labor has generated great controversy between Arab and Israeli media and Link TV is premiering the program to the U.S. television audience in order to offer a fresh perspective on Israeli-Palestinian cultural friction while presenting an unbelievably entertaining show that has made an international splash.-- www.linktv.org/arablabor

ʻAvodah ʻArvit( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Hebrew and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Created by Sayed Kashua, an Israeli-born Palestinian journalist, Arab Labor (translated from the Hebrew "Avoda Aravit", which colloquially implies "shoddy or second-rate work") focuses on Amjad Alian, a Palestinian journalist and Israeli citizen in search of his identity. Poking fun at the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious, cultural and political differences to daringly depict the mixed society that is Israel. ... This season follows Amjad in his attempts, which some will say are futile, to become a part of the Israeli society. Attempts which are at times pathetic, sometimes outrageous, but always heart-warming and thought-provoking."--Link TV (http://www.linktv.org/arablabor (as viewed on 9/24/2013))
ʻAvodah ʻArvit( Visual )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in Hebrew and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amjad Alian, an Arab-Israeli journalist, and his family and friends return for a second season of this funny, provocative, and popular Israeli sitcom. Created by Sayed Kashua, a 32-year-old Israeli-born Palestinian journalist, Arab Labor offers a fresh perspective on Israeli-Palestinian cultural friction while presenting an unbelievably entertaining show that has made an international splash. About Season 2: One decent shower in a Jewish neighborhood is enough to make Amjad decide to upgrade his and his family's life and move from the Arab village to the wealthy Jewish neighborhood in western Jerusalem. In the new neighborhood, there's a great water flow, the garbage is cleaned 3 times a week, there are marked streets, a machine that cleans them, trees, gardens and best of all- no Arabs. Amjad, an Arab very well aware of his inferior status in the eye of his new neighbors, will do absolutely anything in order to win their affection and possibly get accepted by the average Israeli bourgeoisie. In every episode, he tries and retries to prove he is an inseparable part of his neighbors' life. He goes out of his way to please the neighbors, and, in his attempts, completely neutralizes his identity, culture, and nationality, sometimes at the expense of old ties from the village but at most times at the expense of his family members' mental health as they put up with his suspicious behavior. Poking fun at the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious, cultural and political differences to daringly depict the mixed society that is Israel. This show marked a milestone on Israeli television as the first program to present Palestinian characters speaking Arabic on primetime"--Distributor's website (http://www.go2films.com/Family-Social-issues/Arab-Labor-Second-Season?keyword=Arab+Labor (as viewed on 6/28/2012))

Poking fun at the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious, cultural and political differences to daringly depict the mixed society that is Israel. As the fourth season opens, Amjad and Bushra discover that they are about to become parents for the third --and positively unplanned -- time. Bushra is confined to bed rest, and Amjad finds himself torn between his pregnant wife, his family, and his new career as a political media consultant. The social protest will play a guest-starring role in the show as well. Amjad mistakenly joins the leaders of the "tent protesters" in Jerusalem. Meir and Amal go through financial hardships and are forced to part with their comfortable apartment in Jerusalem and move to East Jerusalem
