Delgado, Wife To Join Delegation

Meeting Israel, Palestine Leaders

Congressman Delgado and wife Lacey are joining a 41-member delegation to Israel and Palestine.

Congressman Antonio Delgado, D-19, and his wife Lacey Schwartz Delgado will join 41 House Democrats, led by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, on travel to Israel and the West Bank, Delgado’s office announced today.

The Delgados are raising their two sons in the Jewish faith, said the father, “grounding them in an understanding of respect for all religions and with a deep appreciation for Jewish history and traditions.”

Otsego County’s congressman hopes the trip will help him and his wife “better understand the history of the region, grow our own personal connection to the Jewish faith and hear directly from Israelis and Palestinians who experience the complex dynamics on the ground every day.”

The delegation will meet with both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Palestinian counterpart, President Mahmoud Abbas, as well as Israeli opposition leader Benny Gantz.  Also young Palestinian entrepreneurs, Israeli civil society leaders, and peace activists.

During the trip, Members will visit Israel’s borders with Lebanon and Syria and see an Iron Dome battery. The delegation will also visit important historical and cultural sites, including the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial.
