Jack Lew, the Orthodox Jewish Chief of Staff to President Obama, and Jarrod Bernstein the President’s Jewish Liaison are meeting today Friday morning with NY Jewish Leaders. The meeting is hosted by the JCRC.
Lew was asked why President Obama is against the release of Johnathan Pollard. Lew answered that Pollard’s crimes were serious and he does not sympathise with those acts. However, he will try to look into this in the near future.
