Obama White House Scraps Jewish Heritage Month


obama-jewish-monthThe White House is picking winners and losers as it cuts back because of the sequester, and a planned reception for American Jews is getting the short end of the stick.

Many other events are proceeding as planned, but according to the Jewish news service JTA, the annual White House celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month is canceled.

“Jewish invitees usually include luminaries in the arts, sports and sciences, lawmakers, armed services personnel and the Israeli ambassador, as well as organizational leaders and political supporters of the president,” according to JTA.

The sequester cuts kicked in March 1, but that hasn’t stopped the White House from staging a variety of fun events marking all sorts of occasions.

And oh yeah Obama brokered a deal between Israel and Turkey that involved I srael paying compensation for defending itself when IDF soldiers were attacj when Israel’s national waters were being violated
    All this and canceling the White House reception imagine what would happen if more that 70% American Jews voted for Obama?
