The group went to Tel Aviv, Sderot and Jerusalem.

“It was a very private and high-level mission,” a StandWithUs representative said. “We don’t usually do press on it.”

The group met with Michael Dickson, executive director of StandWithUs — Israel and Israel Defense Forces soldiers (IDF), among others.

SWU supporters from around the world took part in the mission. The delegation arrived in Israel on May 5.

Visiting the IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv, they posed for photographs with IDF soldiers on the building’s helipad overlooking the city.

The delegation was thrilled after seeing the SWU name projected onto City Hall in Tel Aviv, marking the organization’s 18th birthday and 71 years since the founding of the State of Israel.
