President Donald Trump held his first White House Chanukah celebration last week, where he touted his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Trump reportedly did not invite to the reception Jewish Democrats and liberal Jewish organizations that have been highly critical of the president.

“The miracle of Chanukah is the miracle of Israel. The descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have endured unthinkable persecution and oppression, but no force has ever crushed your spirit and no evil has ever extinguished your faith,” Trump said in the White House’s East Room.
