Aish HaTorah Hosts Ambassador David Friedman and White House Faith Leaders

(Courtesy of Aish HaTorah) Aish HaTorah was honored to host Ambassador Friedman, Deputy Ambassador Aryeh Lightstone and a delegation of White House faith leaders together with the Latino Coalition for Israel, who requested to house a celebration of the US embassy move to Jerusalem at the Esteemed Aish HaTorah Dan Family World Center.

“A weekend in Jerusalem has the Muslims praying on Friday, the Jews on Saturday and the Christians on Sunday. People of all faiths come here to worship at the Western Wall and are all welcomed peacefully,” Rabbi Steven Burg, CEO of Aish HaTorah, addressed the crowd over the sunny Aish rooftop luncheon.

Ambassador Friedman said, “Today is a very special day for me as it marks the one year anniversary of my role as ambassador, and I promised that by the end of the first year the U.S. embassy would be in Jerusalem. We made it remarkably close.”

The White House faith leaders were instrumental in lobbying the embassy move to Jerusalem. Aish Rooftop was the ideal venue to host the multicultural group, who celebrated in joy and prayer for Israel’s continued success.
