Israel launched a campaign to attract evangelical Christian tourists to the Jewish state. The campaign, which will begin July 1, features ads with the line, “Don’t put your soul on hold.” The ads highlight Jesus’ connections to the Holy Land. Israel’s tourism minister, Benny Elon, and conservative Christian leader Gary Bauer announced the campaign this week.
