(NEWS) Best Ever Year For Tourism

"The year 5770 of the Hebrew calendar, which comes to a close in three weeks, is the best-ever Hebrew year for incoming tourism: about 3.1 million tourists visited Israel during 5770 - 18 percent more than in 5769, when the number of tourists was 2.6 million, and 10 percent more than recorded in 5768.

During the past few months, the Tourism Ministry has been preparing to welcome the 260,000 tourists who are expected to visit Israel during the Jewish holidays in September as well as the tens of thousands of Israelis who are expected to visit tourist, leisure and entertainment sites around the country."
