WASHINGTON–In Jerusalem, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel drew right right wing hecklers on Thursday but ended up being able to pray at the Western Wall in an emotional visit. The extended Emanuel family is in Israel for the bar mitzvah of Emanuel’s son Zach and a nephew–with his movements closed tracked by the Israeli press.

“Emanuel, son pray at Kotel after right-wingers banned,” Jerusalem Post report here.

The lede: “US President Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel prayed peacefully at the Western Wall on Thursday after police detained right-wing activists Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel, and after Emanuel successfully evaded the press.”
