Kevin McKidd (Grey's Anatomy) and his mother; Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy) and her husband, Lucas Neff (Raising Hope); Shannon Woodward (ER, Raising Hope), Gregory Smith (Everwood, The Patriot, Rookie Blue), and Travis Milne (Rookie Blue) arrived in Jerusalem as guests of "America's Voices in Israel," a Zionist organization that works to further Israeli public relations, and does so by bringing influential public opinion makers to Israel so that they will be favorably impressed and spread the news.
With the arrival of the group from Hollywood to the Inbal Hotel in Jerusalem, they were received by the Assistant General Manager of the hotel, Mr. Ilan Brenner. In the course of the conversation it was revealed that today is the anniversary of Sarah Drew and her husband -- and everyone drank a toast to the couple and wished them many years of love and companionship.
The stars were struck by the amazing landscape of Jerusalem. Gregory Smith, it turns out, is an avid photography enthusiast, and he began to immediately take pictures of the scenery. As luck would have it, fireworks lit up the sky and everyone was thrilled. After a brief explanation of the view and of Jerusalem, everyone decided to embark on a nighttime tour of the city, including getting a bite to eat, and they concluded with a bike ride through the streets of the Old City.
The stars will be guests in Jerusalem until Sunday night.
