WATCH: Trailer drops for Israeli Netflix thriller Hit and Run starring Lior Raz

Fauda co-creators Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff have teamed up again for Israeli drama which premieres next month

Francine Wolfisz is the Features Editor for Jewish News.

Fauda creators Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff have teamed up again for riveting new Israeli thriller Hit and Run, which premieres on Netflix in August.

Raz also stars in the action drama as tour guide Segev Azulai, who lives a contented life in Tel Aviv with his young daughter (Neta Orbach) and new American wife Danielle (Kaelen Ohm).

But when Danielle is killed in a mysterious hit and run on the day she was set to return to New York for a visit, he suspects it may not have been an accident.

Grief-stricken and confused, he searches for his wife’s killers, who have fled to the United States seemingly without a trace.  With the help of an ex-lover (Sanaa Lathan), he uncovers disturbing truths about his beloved wife and the secrets she kept from him.

Raz and Issacharoff co-created the drama alongside Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin, while the glittery cast also features Lior Ashkenazi, Gregg Henry, Igal Naor, Michael Aronov and Kevin Mambo.

Jerusalem-born Raz can also be seen in Fauda, currently streaming on Netflix, with a much-anticipated fourth series said to be in the works.

The political thriller, based on the personal experiences of Raz, Issacharoff and several of their friends who served in the Israeli Defense Forces’ special forces unit, has become a major global hit for the streaming channel.

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
