Invited by the Anti-Defamation League as part a contingent of Latino journalists, Rick had the chance to visit Israel—a first for him.
On a personal level, it was a very moving trip. From seeing the land where Jesus lived, to meeting with both Arab and Jewish families who had lost loved ones, to celebrating shabbat with a Jewish family, Rick had many wonderful experiences.
He chronicles some of them in pieces that are now up on his official website RickSanchezTV.com:
A Sign of Promise: Rick sits down with Israeli journalist Henrique Cymerman, who has just interviewed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
On the Gaza Border with Israel’s “Rocket Man”: Rick spends a day with Micky Rosenfeld in the Israeli town of Sderot, where Qassam Rockets regularly rain down upon its residents.
The Three Wise Men: A Palestinian, a Jewish settler and an Israeli Knesset member share their views on the future.
