A delegation of 23 attorneys general from the United States, including Attorneys General of Arizona, Virginia, Georgia, Rhode Island, Idaho and Arkansas will visit Israel from 25 October to 2 November. This is the 25th consecutive year that a visit of this type has been arranged.

The attorneys general are amongst the most senior and influential government officials in their respective states.  Many American politicians progressed from the position of attorney general to senior positions in federal government, and, as in the case of President Clinton, even to the Presidency.

The attorneys general delegation project, carried out in close cooperation with the America-Israel Friendship League, is one of the MFA’s most important projects.

During their visit, the delegates will meet with senior politicians, the President of the Supreme Court Dorit Beinish, Chairman of the Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee M.K. Menahem Ben-Sasson, Minister of Welfare and Social Services M.K. Isaac Herzog, opposition chairman M.K. Benjamin Netanyahu and senior officials of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Justice. The visitors will tour the country, and will also be briefed on security, economic and cultural issues.
