Dear Friends,

I am delighted to announce that Kenes Tours will become part of ISSTA Sport, effective May 1, 2015.


ISSTA Sport, part of Israel’s largest tourism concern, ISSTA, is the leading outbound travel company in Israel in the field of international sporting and musical events.

Kenes Tours, specializing in tourism to Israel, will be able to explore new avenues for expansion in the incoming tourism world, while still providing the high standards, reliable service and original programming to our long term clients. The merger is subject to the approval by the Israel Antitrust Authority, which is expected to be given within the next few weeks.

I will remain President of Kenes Tours. I will be giving my input and guidance together with Nathan Hitron, Director of Sales and Marketing and Virginia Syvan, Operations Manager.
All of us will work  with Yoav Bruck, Partner, and Assaf Goren, General Manager,
to ensure a smooth transition and the continuation of our personal and devoted care
to our valued clients.


As Kenes Tours celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, we all look forward to 50 more years of successful cooperation ahead and take this opportunity to wish all our friends a Happy Passover!



Best regards,

Elhanan Dvir, President | Kenes Tours
