The Wall Street-based Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce (OJC) will host a special executive VIP trip to Israel with former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci (formerly a Wall Street heavyweight) on Sunday, November 19, through Wednesday, November 22.

Anthony Scaramucci, a.k.a. “The Mooch” said in a statement: “My investments are all about belief in markets, and Israel is one of the most compelling markets in the world. It is a beacon of democracy, an incubator for innovation and is going to be an even larger player in the world economic picture in the future. I couldn’t be more excited to see for myself how this ‘miracle in the desert’ continues to flourish, lead and innovate.”


“I am particularly excited to be joining the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, which is a global leader in 21st century economic development and the ideal entity to help me and others take advantage of what Israel has to offer,” he added. “I would like to thank the Chamber’s Executive Committee for arranging this trip and offer them my warmest congratulations on the occasion of the launch of their Israel branch.”

Scaramucci began his career as White House Communications Director on July 25, and immediately gave an expletive-rich interview with The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, making both obscene and derogatory statements about key members of the Trump Administration. Less than ten days later, he was fired by President Donald Trump, on the recommendation of the new White House Chief of Staff, General John F. Kelly.

OJC founder Duvi Honig and its Executive VP Dr. Joseph Frager will lead the trip, accompanied by a handful of prominent American business leaders.

“Anthony is a Wall Street powerhouse whose dedication to Israel is steadfast,” said Honig. “This trip will make an already great relationship even greater. We look forward to helping him cultivate new worlds of opportunity for both the American and Israeli economies.”

According to the OJC, the trip’s itinerary will give Scaramucci an opportunity to taste of all that Israel has to offer the investor and entrepreneur.
