Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev broke her arm during a visit to a Druze village on Tuesday, though it hasn’t kept her from her duties.

Regev visited the northern Druze village of Yanuh-Jat, near Acre, where she laid the cornerstone for the Druze Heritage Center. During the visit she stumbled and hurt her arm.

On Wednesday morning, after visiting the Western Wall, the minister arrived at the Terem Emergency Medical Services in Jerusalem complaining of pain in her arm. An x-ray found that she had broken her elbow and had to have a cast put on her arm.

“I stumbled yesterday in Yanuh-Jat,” the minister posted on Facebook. “I returned to Jerusalem with a broken arm.”

But the broken arm hasn’t slowed her down.

“See you all at the opening of the Hebrew Book Week tonight in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv,” she wrote.
