Whenever conflicts with Israel's neighbors hit the news it is natural for people to think about the safety of traveling there. However it is probably safer to travel to Israel than to New York, Chicago or Washington, D.C. Israel has had these conflicts since its founding and it scarcely ever affects the safety of tourists visiting that great historic land. I have been to Israel twice and felt safe even while visiting Palestinian territory. Just like people continue to visit the USA despite reports of mass shootings and other disasters, there is always a risk in traveling anywhere but to live in fear is to miss out on the wonderful world out there with so much to see and discover. People kept coming to the USA even after 9/11. There is a risk you take just staying in your house. The key to enjoying life safely is to be careful but not fearful. Just use wisdom when you travel anywhere and follow the instructions of those who have experience.
Regarding our Israel trip, we need to hear from you by Thursday August 7, 2014 if you are definitely planning to go. After that we will have to close the door and the same situation that applies for Greece will apply for Israel. We will try to include anyone wanting to go on a case by case basis.
Oh what fun it is to travel!
