Academy Award-winning American actor Jon Voight visited Hebron on February 20, 2022 as part of a tour of Israel for a film series.

He met with Dr. Noam Arnon and international spokesperson Yishai Flesiher to learn about the history of the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs (Cave of Machpela), the Tomb of Ruth and Jesse and other Jewish archeological sites.

Voight said his fame could help encourage people to visit the region. “Everything becomes alive and gives them strength and clarity because every part of the Bible is a teaching,” he stated.
 

The forthcoming series is tentatively called The Land of Israel: God’s Story and will also feature Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and other locations in the Biblical heartland. It will be distributed by JLTV,  an US-based television network broadcasting Jewish–themed programming such as FaudaPrisoners of War andFriends of Chabad’ which also features Voight.

The veteran actor praised Hebron stating, “we were all moved by the visit and the things that were said, including deep insights into the essence of the fathers and mothers as spiritual sources and the foundations of morality and human values.”

He said the purpose of the new series is to “trace the beginnings and come here and show people the places where these events happened and get an insight into the personalities of the patriarchs and the chosen people who have brought us to this time.”
