Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz will visit the country of his birthplace later this week when he flies to Israel to attend a conference.
Katz will be overseas from June 9 to 17 to attend the Israel International Mayors Conference, his office said. The conference itself, a gathering of 25 mayors from 18 countries, takes place June 12-14 in Israel’s three largest cities, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa.
Katz was born in Rehovot, a city south of Tel Aviv, in 1951. His parents emigrated to Canada shortly after.
