About Safety in Israel
Is it safe to travel to Israel?
Israel is an extremely safe country to visit and tour. In 2013, close to 3.5 million tourists came to Israel, an all-time record, and all of them went back home again safe and sound.
Israel is one of the world’s calmest and safest tourism destinations. Israel’s crime rate is extremely low. Young children play in the parks and it is safe to walk the streets of our cities day and night. A leader of the Society of American Travel Writers that visited Israel last year , wrote: “as I told my worrying family, “I feel safer here than walking around Tampa or Jacksonville.”
