May 16, 2008 10:14 AM
Before he headed back to the United States after his first-ever trip to the Holy Land, American actor Jon Voight stopped in the central Israeli village of Kfar Chabad to meet with beneficiaries of Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl program. According to officials with the Chabad-Lubavitch Youth Organization in Israel, the high-profile visit by the Academy Award winner – who sat down with the children, played games with them and discussed their experiences – brought smiles to the Chernobyl natives, who were rescued from the radiation plaguing that region of their native Ukraine.
