Your Israel Focus is very neat!! I have enjoyed it very much, having been to Israel 4 years ago. I am returning in February '97 and will consult you again.
I also understand that there is a camcorder shot of Jerusalem (Western Wall) somewhere on the Net, but I haven't found it so far. Do you know where?
Thanks,

Bruce, U.S.A.

I'm looking for a direct route to Italy from Israel. I've read that you can get to Greece and Turkey from Israel but not to Italy. I was wondering if anyone there might know of any reletively cheap boats that run from Israel to Italy. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

I am looking for information on the forrest fires which occured in israel in 1995. I think the month was December. If you could e-mail me some information or tell me where I may be able to find that on the web I would greatly appreciate it as I have to do a presentation about it and lack the information. Thanks,

I went to Israel the summer after my sophomore year in high school. It was the most increadible experience I've ever had, and seeing this web site made me appreciate it even more. I just wish there were more pictures!
Thanks,

A friend visited Israel last year, and visited a lovely store in Safed that sold jewelry, artwork and scarves. She said it is on the corner of a street, and is the only really fine jewelry store in the city. Could you suggest a name or two that might turn out to be the right one?
Thanks for your help.

I have found your web page very helpful. I have a specific problem described below.
I have tried calling the Electra Palace hotel using the number on your web page using the country code 30 and the city code 31 and the number listed...I continually get a busy signal. The number is only 6 digits. Perhaps I need more information. I want to know if they have rooms available for the 23- 25 of August 1997.
Thanks for your help.

Hi,
I would like to thank you for all of the wonderful information that you have provided me with. I am extremely interested in the Middle East countries and would like to read more. I am especially interested in Israel. If you have any more elaborate information on its fashion and culture that would be tremedous. I am looking into fashion merchandising in that area and would like to find out as much as I can. Please send any available information.
Thanks,

Nicole Looney (nl5@dana.ucc.nau.edu), U.S.A.


Dear Sirs,
I spent two nights at the Hotel Aviv in Tel Aviv; I found its address on your web sites.
It is a shame that this hotel bears the certificate of the Ministry of Tourism, because it seems like it is still under construction!
I hope you will now visit the hotels you mention in your database in order to be certain of their quality, and avoid sending people to this awful place!
Regards,

A Reader from France


Shalom,
I wander if you could help me find a web site in order to get practical information on Kibutzim. I want to visit Israel and need this information but seen to have a lot of trouble finding it. Did I hit the jackpot with you or do you know another place that I should write phone do what ever it takes to get information on this type of visit to Israel.
Thanks for any information you can give me.

I will be visiting Israel this August with three friends. 2 men and 2 women in total. All 40 years of age.
We would like to take a kayaking trip down the Jordan and have a guided Golan Jeep tour. Also, we want to spend two nights around the Kinneret. I was thinking of Nof Ginosar, Maagan, Ein Gev or Ramot. I know Ramot is not on the shores of the lake. Is there access to a beach nearby?
If you can make some recommendations for us we would really appreciate it.
Thank you.

Hi,
I have recently visited Israel and purchased beauty products to bring back home with me. I would like to order more as I'm now running low on some items. The ones I purchased are by Oris but any would be fine as long as I could order them through the mail. Could you help me find where I can order some of these products here in the US?
Thank you very much,

Mary Beckmann, U.S.A.


Dear Friend,

My daughter and I traveled for five weeks in Israel three years ago. It was the most beautiful experience of my life and it is my dream to return one day....I would even love to live there. The Israeli people are the kindest and most generous people I have ever met. God bless them all.

Would you have any information on the subject?

To Whom It May Concern:
Hey, I just wanted to say that your homepage has been really helpful. The one on Israel. I'm doing report on Israel for school, and your page helped a lot! Of course, I gave credit where it was due in the bibliography. Also, I have a very close friend from irc who lives in Israel, and I'm quiet interested in visiting him someday. But being only 16, that isn't possible for me now. I sincerely hope to, someday.
Well, thank you for info from your page. With appreciation,

Jessica, U.S.A.
