Interviewer extraordinaire Larry King is in Israel for the first time in 20 years and according to his Twitter and Facebook posts, he loves Tel Aviv.

“Is there anything better than lunch by the water? — in Tel Aviv, Israel,” he posted on his social media page. The next photo of a Tel Aviv beach-scape included the capiton: “Sunset in Tel Aviv. What a beautiful city!”

King’s Twitter feed is also full of beach views and pictures of the 81-year-old being interviewed by Israeli media.

King is in town as a guest of the Holon education department. He is taking part in a conference on the topic of the American Jewish education system and relations between the US and Israel.

Last year, King and Technion President Peretz Lavie set up the Israel-Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce to promote cooperation between the two entrepreneurship hubs in Israel and California.
