Obama was laying wreaths at the graves of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism who died in 1904 before realizing his dream of a Jewish homeland, and former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995. He will then visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial before touring the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

The stops are a culmination of the main portion of the president’s Mideast trip on which he has vowed unwavering support for Israel and appealed for new peace talks with the Palestinians. He next travels to Jordan.
