CSI Actors Visit Israel

Stars of the American award-winning show CSI: Miami and CSI: NY are currently visiting Israel as guests of the country’s Tourism Ministry, according to Ynetnews.

It is the first visit to Israel for Jonathan Frederick Togo and Omar Benson Miller (CSI: Miami) and Carmine Giovinazzo and AJ Buckley (CSI: NY).

Both versions of the show are spin-off series of the Emmy winning CBS series, Crime Scene Investigation Las Vegas.

Over seven days, the four will reportedly travel to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea, Masada and the Galilee, among other destinations.

“Over the last year, the Tourism Ministry has increased its hosting of celebrities and opinion-formers with the objective of exposing Israel’s tourism product and increasing incoming tourism,” said Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov.

“Millions of people follow the activities of these leaders on the various social media platforms and via traditional media. Today, the state of Israel is reaping the benefits of the intensive marketing activities carried out by the Tourism Ministry with the all-time record high in incoming tourism that is expected to bring 3.8 million tourists by year end.”

Misezhnikov said that the Tourism Ministry will continue to promote similar international marketing activities throughout the year, “while highlighting the tourism experience and the varied tourism product that Israel has to offer.”
