The Choice of Rahm Emmanuel

Posted on November 6, 2008 In Blog

On the choice of Rahm Emmanuel to be President-elect Obama’s White House Chief of Staff, the JTA has a round-up of articles.

One that the OU would add to their list is from someone who knows Emmanuel well – Jeffrey Goldberg.

We would also note our amusement with the fact that, in the last hour, FOX News did a segment about Mr. Emmanuel with its correspondent
reporting from Israel who noted: “Barak means lightning in Hebrew and Rahm means thunder.”
