Seinfeld visits Israel


Jerry Seinfeld is visiting Israel.

The Jewish American comedian kicked off an Israeli tour to promote his new “Bee Movie” with an hour-long chat with President Shimon Peres on Friday.

According to media reports, Peres complimented Seinfeld on his eponymous television show, which has a huge following in Israel, while the funny man quizzed the elder statesman about how he preserves his health.

During his four-day visit, Seinfeld is expected to drop in at Kibbutz Saar, where he volunteered as a teenager in the early 1970s.
