Kushner introduces White House peace team to Kabbalist Rabbi

Senior Advisor to the Secretary of State, Brian Hook, is introduced to Rabbi David Chananya Pinto.

At a cemetery in Casablanca, Morocco on Tuesday, the White House Middle East peace team met with Rabbi David Chananya Pinto, a noted kabbalistic figure, and prayed at the graveside of the rabbi’s grandfather, Rabbi Chaim Pinto.

Upon arriving, Jared Kushner embraced the rabbi with a kiss on each cheek and proceeded to introduce White House advisor Jason Greenblatt, the State Department’s Brian Hook, and White House assistant Avi Berkowitz to the rabbi. Kushner and the rabbi then walked with their arms linked through the cemetery.  

According to recent reports, the Kushner family are financial supporters of the Pinto family going back several decades.
