Hollywood Celebrities Tweet about Israel

Tourism in Jerusalem is growing, April numbers set a new record.

This week Birthright-Taglit is bringing  59 groups,

each with 40 young people, for their first visit to Israel.

Yet many people think Israel is a dangerous place to visit.

 What do you think you see in this photo?

This week eight US actors were in Jerusalem

with America’s Voices in Israel – AVI tour.

AVI, along with the Ministries of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora and Tourism  

aims to give the celebrities a program that reflects their interests.

Their whirlwind visit ended with this class,

Israeli fans surrounded Eli Finish as soon as he entered the lobby,

while US stars Zach and AnnaLynne went unnoticed to their rooms.

Also on this tour were Paul Johansson (90210 & Atlas Shrugged),

Omar Epps (ER & House), Holly Robinson Peele (21 Jump St),

Mekhi Phifer (ER) and Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds).

We will have to wait and see if the tweets, Facebook photos

and blogs on this celebrity trip will be a positive influence

on how their fans view Israel.

I do know they had a great time and plan to return,

Zach said I could quote him…

“I’ll be back!”
