Afternoon Refreshments & Presentation with Israel Ministry of Tourism
Why NOW is the Time to Visit Israel
Israel is the vacation of a lifetime. For two years, we have had to postpone the meaningful experiences that only travel can provide. Finally, after a host of closures and restrictions, Israel is open to vaccinated tourists. Experiences such as visiting the lowest place on earth (the Dead Sea), tasting a mashup of 70 different cultures in Tel Aviv street good, and of course, walking in the footsteps of the Bible await. Israel is a place to wonder, a place to think and especially a place to connect. Now is the time because if not now, when?
Jill Daly, Director, Israel Ministry of Tourism, Midwest Region
