The Los Angeles Jewish community recently welcomed Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), a strong supporter and vocal advocate for a strong U.S.-Israel alliance.
Engel was hosted by Melanie and Robert Rechnitz, and was greeted by a cross-section of Democrats and Republicans. Attendees asked Engel a range of questions about Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama, the Iranian nuclear threat, Iraq, U.S. and Israeli relations with Turkey, the J Street lobbying group, and other issues concerning Israel and the American Jewish community.
