Christians Constitute Half of All Tourists in Israel, Survey Shows

Download PDF for this date

The Tourism Ministry released results of a survey today which showed that half of all foreign tourists visiting Israel are Christians and only 38 percent have been Jews.

One percent belonged to other faiths and the rest did not indicate their faith. The survey said that while only a minority of those questioned expressed satisfaction with Israel’s hotels and restaurants, their general opinion of Israel was very favorable. Eighty-eight percent said they would recommend a visit to Israel to their friends.
