After their recent trip to Israel from September 28 -October 2, eleven Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA former winners traveled to Israel and gave tremendously positive impressions of their trip on social media. Their trip was organized by The Face of Israel which promotes Israel through bringing together international figures with average Israeli citizens.

Ariel Bulshtein said of the Miss America delegation, “The group of pageant winners engaged all sectors of Israeli society and learned about our vibrant democracy and serious security needs during their visit.” The women toured the Old City, the Dead Sea, Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial as well as trips to Sderot, children’s hospitals as well as visits with the IDF, Knesset members and internet start-up founders.

Kristen Dalton, Miss USA 2009, wrote, “Israelis have an exquisite, highly innovative country that provides job security, democracy, health insurance and top quality education to people of all religions and races. Most importantly, they value life over death. I was mesmerized by the fact that every Israeli we met had a genuine smile on their face and a glimmer of hope in their eyes.”

Mallory Hagan, Miss America in 2013 commented, “The technology developed in Israel has saved thousands of lives, but the idea of fifteen seconds to find shelter certainly opened our eyes to the drastic way the conflict with Gaza affected the normal, day-t0-day ways of living.” She added, “Of all the travels I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy, this will be the most life-changing. I am so grateful to be here.”
