U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman immediately went to the Western Wall to pray for President Donald Trump on Monday after the envoy arrived in Israel for the first time in his new post. While there, he happened to bump into Steven Tyler, lead singer of the band Aerosmith, which is set to perform in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

The two exchanged a few friendly words at the unplanned meeting.

“Well, it was a long trip. We’re a bit tired, but we wanted to come straight to the holiest place in the entire Jewish world, the ‘Kotel Hamaaravi,’ the Western Wall, so we came straight here,” Friedman said, according to a video posted by the U.S. Embassy in Israel.

Friedman, who was greeted at the holy site by Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, the Western Wall’s official rabbi, will present his credentials to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin Tuesday.

“I had the opportunity to say some prayers,” Friedman said. “I prayed for the president, and I wished him success, especially on his upcoming trip. I hope we all wish him success. We hope it’s going to be an amazing trip.”

Trump is scheduled to stop in Israel May 22-23 after he visits Saudi Arabia.
