( Famed Jewish-American comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld is slated to make his comedic debut in Israel later this year.

Seinfeld, who was born in Brooklyn to Jewish parents from the Ukraine and Syria, will perform in Tel Aviv’s Mitvtachim Menorah Arena on Dec. 19 as part of a world tour.

The comedian is most known for his enormously popular NBC sitcom “Seinfeld,” which ran from 1989-1998 and is widely considered one of the greatest TV series of all time.

The visit will not be Seinfeld’s first to Israel, where he most recently visited in 2007 to promote his film “Bee Movie.”
