Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will lead a trip of congressional Democrats on an upcoming trip to Israel, her office announced on Saturday.

"There is no greater political accomplishment in the 20th century than the establishment of the State of Israel," the announcement read. "Our delegation is pleased to be able to extend the congratulations of the American people to the people of Israel as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Jewish state this spring."

The trip includes 10 congressional representatives. After visiting Israel, the delegation will then travel to Jordan, which Pelosi called a "key ally."

Three of the representatives on the trip, Adam Schiff (CA), Jan Schakowsky (IL) and Jamie Raskin (MD), are Jewish.
