Omer Eshel is the Director of the Israel Ministry of Tourism for the Midwest Region. He promotes tourism to Israel in 13 states. He is a 4th generation resident of Moshav Merhavia, the first Jewish community established in Israel’s northern Jezreel Valley. He served 3 years in the Israeli Defense Forces. He is a certified Israel tour guide and served as the Head of Staff for Israel’s National Parks. He’s been with the Israel Ministry of Tourism since 2008.

It is 100% safe to travel in Israel. In 2010 Israel had over 3.4 million people come though which means every third person on the streets was a tourist and 2012 is turning out to be even better.

Israel is a high tech nation so tourism is only 4th or 5th in terms of factors that feed the economy.

Why should people choose Israel as a tourist destination? Omer’s answer was simple. While you can see mountains and rivers in a lot of places, there’s only one Jerusalem. Israel is a place where the Bible truly comes to life because it’s filled with names and places just as they are in God’s Word.

How does a person or group go about planning a trip to Israel? Because of the spiritual impact that a visit to Israel has on a person, Omer recommends going with a group. You can start with your pastor or form a group on your own. Then go to and start making plans!

In addition, Omer briefly discusses some interesting discoveries that prove the validity of the lives of Samson as well as Joshua.
