Gov. Scott Walker visited Jerusalem Sunday on the first day of his five-day trip to Israel and was photographed standing near the Western Wall.

Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matt Brooks tweeted a photo of Walker clad in a yarmulke, the traditional Jewish head covering for males, and blue polo shirt near the Western Wall, which is considered the holiest place for Judaism. Also known as the Wailing Wall or Kotel, it’s a place many Muslims, Christians and Jews visit in Israel.

On Sunday morning Brooks tweeted: “Hitting the day running on first day in #Israel w/ @ScottWalker -visited the Kotel, Christian holy sites and Old City.”

Calling his Israel visit an “educational trip,” Wisconsin’s Republican governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate is expected to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other government leaders, take a helicopter tour of historical and strategically significant sites, visit religious sites and meet with Israeli and Palestinian entrepreneurs.
