President Obama sent personal Rosh Hashana greetings to Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, and in addition to some serious remarks about the U.S.-Israel relationship gave a shout-out to Oren’s Jersey roots:
Michael, your life of service embodies the bonds between our nations — not bad for a kid from Jersey.
Oh, and this just in: Republican Jewish Coalition criticizes the president for ridiculing New Jersey.
Just kidding. they wouldn’t do that – New Jersey isn’t in play.
