Sean Penn Does Jerusalem

After attending the IsraAid conference on rebuilding Haiti, followed by a visit to the Peres Center for Peace, actor and humanitarian Sean Penn visited Jerusalem.

Accompanied by Senior VP of J/P HRO, Mr. Philip Caputo and IsraAID staff, Penn began the day with a unique experience at Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum. He then continued on to the Old City, and throughout his visit to its many holy sites, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Western wall, the Citadel of David and view of the Dome of the Rock, Penn commented on the city’s interesting and special history, and expressed hope for the future.

Later, accompanied by artist David Broza, Penn visited an inspiring Jewish-Arab school, and was visibly moved during talks with the kids, who also sang along with Broza.

Penn concluded the day with a night tour of Tzidkiyahu Cave in the Old City.

It is hard to tell from the photos what Penn is thinking – he is not the “smiliest” guy around. Although he does seem happiest when at the Jewish-Arab school.
