Today Israel will welcome 31 of the 33 Chilean miners as they arrive in Jerusalem to begin an 8-day pilgrimage of thanksgiving.
The men are accompanied by their wives or girlfriends.
Our Ministry of Tourism is paying for their air fare and expenses.
More about it here:
Jerusalem Post and Israelity.
Photos are from the opal exposition in Sydney, Australia.
UPDATE: Now the papers are saying that 23 (and not 31) of the miners arrived. They are having a wonderful and moving time at the holy places.
