(NECN: Alison King) - Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick is on the road from Tel Aviv, heading to Jerusalem.

In between, the local delegation visited Haifa, Boston's sister city in Israel. Patrick met with the mayor there, exchanged gifts, and also met with the president of the University of Haifa.

Patrick was also able to chat with some American students who are studying abroad. That university is known as the "MIT of Israel," centered on the high-tech sector.

Patrick held an American town hall-style meeting there, and a several of his cabinet members were also available to answer questions about clean technology and life sciences. The whole concept seemed unfamiliar to many Israelis, but they seemed to enjoy it.
