Tourism Ministry: Are Di Caprio, Lawrence and Stallone on their way to
Jerusalem, February 7, 2016 - The Tourism Ministry is cooperating with the
American events company offering "gift bags" to Oscar nominees in the acting
and directing categories at this year's Academy Awards ceremony to take
place at the end of this month. Included in the gift bag, a 10-day VIP trip
to Israel for two.
The gift bags offered to the nominees are one of Hollywood's best-known
attractions during the award ceremony season. Among the typical "goodies"
are luxury watches and jewelry, luxury car rentals, pampering beauty
treatments and more. And among the goodies this year, a particularly
pampering treat - a VIP vacation in Israel!
The nominees will be able to travel to Israel during 2016 at a time of their
choice, traveling first class (tickets for two) and staying in the top 5
Tourism Minister Yariv Levin: "These are the most senior people in the film
industry in Hollywood and leading opinion-formers who we are interested in
hosting here in Israel so that they will experience the country first hand
and not through the media. If they do indeed accept the invitation, their
visit will have enormous resonance among millions of fans and followers,
including social media. The very fact that they are considering visiting
Israel places the option in the public discourse in the social and
professional circles in which the stars move."
Among the nominees who could be touring in Tel Aviv or walking through the
streets of the Old City of Jerusalem - Leonardo diCaprio, Matt Damon,
Jennifer Lawrence, Sylvester Stallone, Christian Bale and Kate Winslett.
