The Times of Israel’s Amy Spiro tells us about the Miss Universe pageant, held this year in the beautiful Israeli city of Eilat:

Miss India Harnaaz Sandhu was crowned the new Miss Universe in a glitzy ceremony in the Red Sea port of Eilat in the early hours of Monday morning, marking the 70th anniversary of the beauty competition…
