Trumps Hanukah event excluded Jewish Democrats

Trumps Hanukah event excluded Jewish Democrats

The event came on the heels of Mr Trump's controversial decision to designate Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the United States embassy to the holy city - an announcement that was greeted with condemnation from Arab leaders and sparked unrest in the Middle East.

Many eyes were on Ivanka Trump during last night's closely watched Hanukkah party at the White House. According to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), as well as other Jewish Democrats in Congress, invitations were never extended by the Trump administration.

The obvious stab at the-then POTUS was long forgotten until it was dug up by Twitterati recently, after Trump announced the White House Hanukkah party will be held Thursday.

"The miracle of Hanukkah is the miracle of Israel", he said, the Times of Israel reported.

Bryan Singer 'categorically denies' allegations of rape
In 2014, actor and model Michael Egan sued Singer, claiming that the entertainment industry bigshot had forced him to have sex. This lawsuit was eventually dropped, with Herman apologizing to Ancier and Neuman, who filed a suit for malicious prosecution.

Coincidentally, he also forgot to invite many Jewish activists and members of the Reform Jewish movement - people who were openly critical about this decision such as Union for Reform Judaism President Rabbi Rick Jacobs - to his "festival of lights". "We are proud to stand with the people of Israel and to renew our enduring bond". Such was the custom of previous American presidents.

"And right now I'm thinking about what's going on and the love that's all over Israel and all about Jerusalem".

If it wasn't a War on Hanukkah, it was seen as a war on Democratic Jewish members of Congress, including Rep. Adam Schiff of Los Angeles.

'It's deeply unfortunate that the White House Hanukkah Party - a bipartisan event bringing together Jewish and non-Jewish leaders alike to celebrate the Festival of Lights since 2001 - has turned into a partisan affair under this administration, ' Representative Nita M. Lowey of NY said in a statement.

Shemtov, who helped Bush make the White House kosher and was at each one of her Hanukkah parties, said each year he gets about 100 calls from people who hope he can help them get in to the party.
