ABOUT BEHOLD ISRAEL
Founder & President, Behold Israel
BEHOLD ISRAEL is a non-profit organization founded and managed by native-born Israeli Amir Tsarfati, focusing on the most controversial region in the world today, where events are clouded by public ignorance and media bias. Our vital mission is to provide worldwide real-time access to reliable sources of
news and information about Israel – from within the powerful context of Bible
history and prophecy.
Amir’s unique background as a Bible prophecy teacher, licensed tour guide,
travel agency CEO, homeland-security consultant and key player in Israel’s
military brought him into contact with many people of faith and government
officials – also revealing how much of Israel’s true story is misunderstood by the
media and the general public. Realizing that his diverse background made
him especially qualified to address the problem, Amir set out to create a new
understanding of Israel, rooted in its deep connection to Bible prophecy.
Thus BEHOLD ISRAEL was conceived, to correct the scarcity in trustworthy
reportage on issues and events impacting Israel, and to resolve the
uncertainty about who or what to believe.
BEHOLD ISRAEL’s mission is dedicated to sifting out the truth about current
Israeli developments, based in the timeless Truth from God’s written Word.
The resulting perspective cuts through global media-generated fog to
distinguish between balance and bias, fact and fiction, fair news coverage
and agenda-driven indoctrination.
On a spiritual level, Amir’s personal faith and prophecy knowledge bring
deeper clarity regarding this tiny country so central to God’s plan for the Last
Days, strengthening believers in their own faith. Understanding how Israel’s
past and present connects with her future leads to a realization of God’s
unchanging faithfulness to His promises.
In order to disseminate the message of BEHOLD ISRAEL, Amir presents his
knowledge of the ancient Bible and modern day Israel through a range
of media channels, including public speaking engagements, publication
of articles and essays, TV and radio interviews, and production of DVDs.
Determined to make these valuable resources available to as wide an
audience as possible, Amir utilizes the global reach of social media, including
the BEHOLD ISRAEL mobile application, Facebook, Twitter and more. That
versatility makes BEHOLD ISRAEL the most powerful tool in strengthening the
bonds between individuals, communities and Israel, presenting a range of
information that illustrates Bible prophecy as it is unfolding today.
CEO, SAR-EL TOURS 2010-2012
Amir was promoted to one of the most sought-after positions in the world
of incoming tourism in Israel, and at the age of 38 became CEO of Sar-El
Tours & Conferences. During two years at this premiere Israeli travel agency,
Amir developed relationships with colleagues in the US, China, Hong Kong,
Germany, South Africa, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Philippines and
elsewhere. Around 1500 groups arrived from abroad each year to experience
Israel and “walk through” their Bibles

largest Christian travel agency for 15 years.

INTERNATIONAL HOMELAND-SECURITY SPEAKER
Amir joined the Israeli army in 1990 and underwent basic training during the first Gulf War. He served almost a year in the IDF Armored (Tank) Corps, and after graduating from the officer’s academy in 1992, he was stationed in Jericho. Shortly afterward, the peace process began and Jericho was the first city transferred to the Palestinian Authority. Amir, then 21, was appointed as active Deputy Governor of Jericho and the Jordan Valley, also becoming one of Israel’s military negotiators with the Palestinians. He served approximately six more months after the city changed authority before returning to civilian life.
Since 2004, Amir has been consultant to various law enforcement agencies and seminars on homeland-security issues. In 2008 he was invited by the Rochester (NY) Police to lecture at a seminar on terrorism, as the keynote speaker at the Hostage Negotiators Conference. He also held a HLS seminar at the Philippine Military Academy
ISRAELI MESSIANIC BELIEVE
Amir was born to a Jewish family in Jerusalem. He grew up in the Jerusalem area and heard about the Messiah while living with a foster family as a high school senior. It was when he saw the “Jesus” film by Campus Crusade that he accepted Jesus into his heart, which was the turning point in his life. Amir, his wife and their three children live in northern Israel and are expecting their fourth child
