Now here's something positive from Hollywood: several actors took a tour of Israel
A group of eight Hollywood TV and film stars completed a week-long tour of Israel Sunday as guests of the Tourism Ministry and the Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Ministry.
The star-studded group included Anna Lynne McCord (90210 , Nip & Tuck), Omar Epps (House), Paul Johansson (One Tree Hill), Holly Robinson Peete (21 Jump St., Hanging With Mr. Cooper), Mekhi Phifer (ER, Tuskegee Airmen), Holt McCallany ( Lights Out), Zach Roerig (Vampire Diaries) and Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds).
The group of actors was led by Rabbi Irwin Katsof, the director of America's Voices in Israel (AVI), which is part of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. Katsof described the celebrity mission as part of an "on-going initiative to expose the Hollywood community to a wide-range of thought-provoking cultural, historical, religious and personal encounters throughout the Holy Land."
I'm glad to see that this bunch set such a good example, unlike certain others in Hollywood
who sure aren't.
