SAN ANTONIO -- Mayor Ron Nirenberg will be traveling to Israel beginning October 21 to lead a trade mission to the country.

The trip was organized by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Jewish Federation of San Antonio. More than 20 businesses and community leaders will participate in the mission.

The delegation will visit Tel Aviv and Jerusalem with the hopes of fostering trade and relationships with Israeli businesses.

Israel was a targeted country in San Antonio’s 2015 trade and investment strategy. The city also signed a Friendship City Agreement with Tel Aviv in 2011.
