Israel did not win anything at the Summer Olympics in London but gold medals are on the way after Jewish-American gymnast Aly Raisman accepted an official invitation from Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein Friday to come to Jerusalem with her family.

In a phone conversation facilitated by US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, Raisman told Edelstein that she was really happy to be invited and that she would decide with her family when would be the best time to come.

A source close to Edelstein said the end of December would be a likely choice because Raisman's younger siblings Brett, Chloe, and Madison would be on vacation from school. Raisman and her family have never been to Israel.

The gymnast won a gold medal for her floor routine, which she performed to the tune of “Hava Nagila.” She won another gold medal for the performance of the US women’s gymnastics team she captained and a bronze in the balance-beam competition.
