American Jewish comedian and former star of the hit television series Seinfeld Jerry Seinfeld visited the Israeli Air Force’s Ramon airbase in southern Israel on Tuesday, days after a pair of shows in Tel Aviv.

Seinfeld, whose eponymous series turned him into an international sensation, returned to stand-up comedy following the show’s finale in 1998.

The 63-year-old comedian first performed in Israel in December 2015, and had spent time volunteering at Kibbutz Sa’ar as a teenager in 1970.

Last week, Seinfeld returned to Israel for two more shows, performing at Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtachim Arena Saturday night.

During his trip to Israel, Seinfeld made several public appearances while touring the country, and was spotted at a popular Tel Aviv falafel shop ahead of his Saturday performances.

On Tuesday, Seinfeld visited the IAF’s Ramon airbase near the Egyptian border, with a brief photo-op in front of an IAF F-16I fighter jet.
