I've Been Thinking:
On the cultural front it is always interesting to watch who comes to Israel and who cancels their trips to Israel. But let's talk about who comes.
This past week Denzel Washington, Pauletta, his wife of thirty years and his family, flew into Israel on a private jet.
As a family they visited Haifa and were hosted by Denzel's long time friend from acting school in New York City, Dr. David Davis. Davis is the head of Messianic Jews in Haifa.
The Washington family also visited Jerusalem, stayed in a prominent Jerusalem hotel (the Citadel of David Hotel) and visited the Old City and the Western Wall. According to rumor, which often turns out to be true, Denzel and Pauletta bought his and hers wedding rings spun from red gold and a few cigars, one of Denzel's passions.
In 2011, according to an announcement he made on Larry King, Bon Jovi and his legendary band will be performing in Israel.
