An additional initiative of Rabbi Melchior is Kulanu. Kulanu seeks to strengthen the Jewish character of the State of Israel, enhance democracy, and foster unity through its diverse projects. Kulanu is best known for its Chagim BaKehilla (literally: holidays in the community) program, which provides religious services for secular Jews for many of the Jewish holidays. Kulanu worked with Teva Ivri to launch the Shmita Yisraelit program. Programs: • Chagim BaKehilla • Shmita Yisraeli (in coordination with Teva Ivri) • Meitarim: Inclusive Jewish Educational Network • Yom Kippur Shel Kulanu • B'Yachad: For a Shared Jewish Democratic Society
Reorganising took one and a half years, but on 13 June 1993, the now MDR restarted the series in Tatort format. This first episode played in Leipzig , just as in 1991. However, today's episodes produced by the MDR play in Magdeburg , while those produced by NDR play in Rostock . The ORB (and later ORB's successor, RBB ) has its episodes headed by the same team of investigators, but take place in various cities of Brandenburg . In addition, Bavarian Broadcasting station BR produces its own Polizeiruf episodes playing in Munich next to its Tatort episodes playing in the same city. Like the original, the Bavarian Polizeiruf episodes focus more on the psychology of the crimes and more on crimes other than homicides. Over the years several other 'western' local broadcasts tried their hands at producing Polizeiruf episodes as a line of 'alternative Tatort' next to the regular ones. However, all of them stopped after a few episodes.
