Freshman democratic congressman Rep. John Hall visits Israel

from Politics on the Hudson: "A little bit of the Hudson Valley heads to Israel"

Bill Ryan, the chairman of the Westchester Board of Legislators, and Rep. John Hall are headed to Israel tomorrow as part of a good-will mission organized by The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York.

The group is scheduled to be in Israel through Friday and their itinerary includes stops in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. They also plan to meet with several top Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

For Ryan, a White Plains Democrat, the trip marks his first visit to that part of the world. The highlight, he said, will be meeting with Olmert and the other Israeli officials.

“It should be very interesting to see,” Ryan said of the country.
