Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) was in Israel earlier this week visiting the Jewish state with Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and other members of Congress.
The trip included a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, inset, and a stop at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, above.
Meng also visited Tel Aviv, the Golan Heights, the Palestinian territories and viewed an Iron Dome missile defense battery. This is her second visit to Israel, having gone in 2010 while in the state Assembly.
Meng is a member of the House foreign affairs subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa.
