Hollywood Stars visiting Dimona’s Black Hebrews

A group of Hollywood stars from hit American TV shows The Walking Dead, Dexter, Lost and Hawaii Five-0 traveled across Israel, visiting different sites and communities during a one-week mission trip from December 27 to January 2.

Israel’s Ministry for Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy sponsored the visit in cooperation with America’s Voices in Israel and Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who arranged the trip.

During the trip, the celebrities met with Israeli policy makers and locals, and toured strategic, religious, and historical sites including Old Jaffa, Masada, Tiberias, Nazareth, ancient Caesarea, the Sea of Galilee, Tel Aviv, Haifa, and the Old City of Jerusalem.

One of the highlights of the trip for Martin-Green, was the visit to the desert town of Dimona in the Negev and meeting with the renowned Black Hebrew Israelites who arrived mostly from Chicago to Israel in 1969.

“After this trip, I will bring back home the necessity of embracing other cultures and how we are enlarged as a result of that,” she said.
