Governor Scott Walker visited Yerushalayim on Sunday on the first day of his five-day trip to Israel and made a stop at the Kosel.
Walker was clad in a yarmulka and blue polo shirt at the Kosel, where he spoke to Rav Shmuel Rabinovich, rov of the Kosel and mekomos hakedoshim in Eretz Yisroel.
Calling his Israel visit an “educational trip,” Wisconsin’s Republican governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate is expected to meet with Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and other government leaders, take a helicopter tour of historical and strategically significant sites, visit religious sites and meet with Israeli and Palestinian entrepreneurs.
Today, Walker met with Natan Sharansky.
After he returns from Israel on Thursday, Walker is scheduled to visit Iowa for political events next weekend.
