Conan O’Brien Jokes His Way Through Holy Land [VIDEO]

All the days of a poor man are wretched, But contentment is a feast without end.” Proverbs 15:15 (The Israel Bible™)

American comedian and television host Conan O’Brien is visiting Israel for the week and documenting various moments of his trip via social media for an episode of the “Conan Without Borders” travel show. The late night host had tweeted over a week ago that he was “leaving America during this divisive time for the relative peace and quiet of the Middle East.”

El Al Captain Itzik Garber shared an airline cockpit selfie of himself and Conan on Facebook, joking that El Al airlines had flown the comedian into Israel on Thursday on what was a “national mission.”

Conan himself tweeted a video from his El Al flight to Israel, his first trip with the Israeli airline, where he brushed up on his Hebrew in the airline bathroom. He noted that the towel disposal sign appeared in both English and Hebrew lettering, with which he was familiar from the Old Testament “when Moses tells his people to listen to the commandments, and also dispose of their towels…Moses was a real neatnik.”
