The trip began with a helicopter ride over central Israel which also stopped in Sderot, on the border of Gaza, for a short visit. Highlighting the tour was a private meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. At the meeting in the Cabinet Room, the Prime Minister briefed the group on the status of the peace talks as well as the geo political situation in the region, the Syrian civil war and the booming Israeli start up economy.
