White House Honors Jewish Leaders With Christmas Tree Invitation
President and Mrs. Bush sent out invitations to leaders of the Jewish community for a Hanukkah reception at the White House next month. Unfortunately, the invitation contained a Christmas tree and Christmas wreaths.
The message reads that the couple “requests the pleasure of your company at a Hanukkah reception,” written beneath an image of a Clydesdale horse hauling a Christmas fir along the snow-dappled drive to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
A close look at the wagon reveals the words “White House Christmas Tree 2008.” And there are Christmas wreaths on the White House windows.
Jewish community leader Isaac Abraham of Brooklyn had a simpler explanation.
“It’s obvious what’s going on here: The Christmas tree is being taken out of the White House and the menorah is being brought in the back,” he quipped.Click here for reuse options!
