Where was Kathie Lee this past week, viewers of NBC's the Kathie Lee and  Hoda Show were wondering this week. It turns out she was in Israel, and she shared some of her experience's on the show this week. 

"Ten days ago I left from here to go to the Holy Land, to Israel specifically," she said.

Gifford said she has been going to Israel for 45 years. She said she was 17-years-old when she went for the first Jerusalem Conference on Biblical Prophecy, for which she added she missed her high school graduation to attend. 

Gifford and her co-host Hoda Kotb toasted on two wooden goblets that she purchased in Bethlehem.

The talk show host recalled her time at the Dead Sea, brought back jewellery from the jeweler Kashi, whose clients she said include Brooke Shields and Janet Jackson and sampled chocolate-flavored tahini and wine-flavored halva.
