In 2012, after going on my first Israel trip, I decided to return to the Holy Land and find the best way to lead tours in the future. I rented a little Fiat car and drove to as many sites as I could to plan my route and find the best material. When I set out on that personal pilgrimage,...

Is It Safe to Travel to Israel?

0

Listen to an interview I did with Shalom Almog in Israel, the owner of Coral Tours: I’ve been to Israel many times and never felt unsafe. The times I spent in downtown Chicago were far more frightening to me than any of my night walks in Israel. But let’s be honest, Israel has never known life without conflict. Israel has been...
