Trump’s Israel Advisor Visits Brooklyn Jewish Community

Donald Trump’s top advisor on Israel and Jewish-related issues, Jason Dov Greenblatt, recently met with a group of Rabbis and Jewish community leaders in Brooklyn, according to a Thursday news release by the Flatbush Jewish Community Coalition (FJCC).

Greenblatt, who was outed as Trump’s advisor during a meeting with Jewish media representatives in April, met with several rabbis and with community leaders, including leaders of Agudath Israel of America, Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zweibel, Sol Werdiger, and Chaskel Bennett.

“A wide range of important topics were discussed, with a significant focus on the US-Israel relationship,” according to FJCC’s Josh Mehlman. “Mr. Greenblatt, who articulated his Torah background as essential to his activities, expressed appreciation for the important dialogue. The Rabbonim and communal leaders praised Mr. Greenblatt for his ongoing efforts to raise awareness on issues of deep concern to the Orthodox Jewish Community.”

Trump lost the Orthodox Jewish vote to his former rival Ted Cruz in the Republican New York primary. A recent poll showed that Trump’s image among Jewish voters is underwater by 58 percent. Only 19 percent view the father of Ivanka Trump and former Grand Marshal at the Israel Day Parade favorably. A whopping 77 percent have an unfavorable view of him.
