(FL) Gov. Rick Scott leaves for weeklong trip to Israel
Advertisements [?]

"In a trip that may be as much about politics as it is about jobs, Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday headed to Israel for a weeklong trade mission.

Like former governors Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush, Scott has chosen to visit the Middle East country during his first year in office.

Israel isn't a significant trading partner with Florida, currently ranking 56th, but that nation has extensive cultural and social ties to Florida due to the state's estimated 750,000 Jewish residents. Florida has the third largest Jewish community in the United States.

Scott's trip will take him to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem as well as landmarks such as the Western Wall and Yad Vashem, the Israeli memorial to victims of the Holocaust. Scott plans to lay a wreath at the burial site of Yitzhak Rabin, the Israeli prime minister who was assassinated in 1995."
