The Jerusalem Post reports:

Acclaimed American journalist Dan Rather, former anchor of the CBS Evening News and 60 Minutes, is visiting Israel this week to “show this important land” to his grandson.

Though details surrounding the trip were sparse, Rather posted about his travails to Jerusalem and the North on  Twitter.

On Tuesday, Rather and his grandson visited Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem, where they were shown a copy of Schindler’s list.

Later on in the day, they stopped at the Western Wall in the Old City, where Rather said there was “so much to ponder and wonder.”

Rather posted images of his trip to Twitter.
