 New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is scheduled to visit Yad Vashem in Jerusalem on Sunday. While at the museum, Cuomo will tour the exhibits, visit the Children's Memorial and participate in a memorial ceremony with President Reuven Rivlin.

Cuomo's visit to Yad Vashem is part of a short 'solidarity' tour of Israel. During his two-day trip ending Monday, he will also meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and President Reuven Rivlin among senior Israeli officials.

Cuomo has been a vocal supporter of Israel and harsh critic of the BDS movement  in the past. In 2016, he signed an executive order which barred New York state from doing business with institutions and companies that boycott Israel.
