Former vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrapped up her two-day visit to Israel with dinner at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's official residence in Jerusalem.

She traveled to Israel after delivering a speech in India over the weekend.

Netanyahu and his wife Sara hosted the private meeting with Palin and her husband Todd.

Local press reports said they spoke about the Palin's tour of the Holy Land, as well as the biblical Book of Esther and the holiday of Purim.

This was Palin's first trip to the Jewish state.

"Israel is absolutely beautiful, and it is overwhelming to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith, and I am so grateful to get to be here," Palin told reporters, referring to the role the Temple played in the life of Jesus. "I'm very thankful to know that the Israeli and American link will grow in strength as we seek peace along with you."

She's known as an Israel supporter, who has kept an Israeli flag in her office.
