Aliza Olmert, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, visited an early childhood education center in New York on May 26. Olmert, who was in the United States accompanying her husband as he met with President Bush, told JTA last week that she is trying to determine her political and public role. “I don’t want to let it pass by without doing things really meaningful to me,” she said. The center Olmert visited — the Bloomingdale Family Program — serves preschoolers from low-income families. The center is part of the U.S. government’s Head Start initiative. The visit was organized by the New York State Governor’s Office and the American section of the World Jewish Congress. `
