Visit of an Israeli minister to Jewish leaders in D.C. is postponed

According to reports in Hebrew media, the scheduled Thursday meeting between Jewish leaders in the Washington, D.C., region and Israel’s Minister for Diaspora Affairs, Amichai Chikli, has been postponed.

The last-minute cancellation, according to Maariv, occurred as a result of rabbis who had been invited to the conference announcing that they would not attend as well as activist pressure from a group calling itself

“UnXeptable: Saving the Israeli Democracy.” The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington and the Embassy of Israel were the co-organizers of the “off-the-record” roundtable discussion, which was to take place in the North Bethesda headquarters of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington in the afternoon.

UnXeptable, who intended to demonstrate against the event in front of the JFed building, reposted a tweet that included a screenshot of an email from Adam Odesser, the director of the JCRC’s Israel Action Center, stating that the meeting had been postponed “due to schedule changes.”

Following the cancellation of comparable meetings with Israeli Economy Minister Nir Barkat in Boston and Innovation, Science, and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis in Los Angeles, the Chikli meeting has also been postponed. Simcha Rothman of the Religious Zionism Party was harassed by anti-of

government demonstrators on June 3 in New York City, and the New York Police Department dismissed a complaint against him after he yanked a megaphone away from a protester who was following him in Manhattan.

More than 40,000 people showed up on June 4 for the “Celebrate Israel Parade,” which marked New York City’s support for the Jewish state and commemorated the 75th anniversary of Israel’s birth, in spite of the anti-government instigators.
