A star-studded group of Hollywood actors and musicians are taking part in a cultural, historical and religious adventure across the Holy Land. America’s Voices in Israel is once again hosting a week-long tour of the country for the celebrities.

The contingent includes actress Lea Thompson (“Switched at Birth”, “Back to the Future”), C.S. Lee (“Dexter”), Vivian Bang (“Sullivan & Son”), Anson Mount (“Hell on Wheels”), music video director Howard Deutch, Zoey Deutch (who stars in “Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters”) and musician Madelyn Deutch.

On an earlier trip, television actress Lana Parrilla – of ‘Once Upon A Time’ fame – even got engaged to Fred Di Blasio during a tour of the Negev Desert.

America’s Voices in Israel, a division of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, hopes to expose the celebrities to “the day-to-day dynamics which shape the destiny of the Jewish State.”
