Yisrael Medad
I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970. I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh. I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and was Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center. I am now Deputy Editor of the critical edition in anthology of Jabotinsky's writing in English.

I decided to check out a hunch.

Did the United States Consulate General publish Chanukah greetings to Israelis?

I checked the three major social media platforms used by the United States Consulate General in Jerusalem.

No Chanukah greetings.



Instagram. (There is however a Christmas one up already)

Don't Jews count?

President Donald Trump has sent greetings.

Ambassador David Friedman, too.

What is going on at the Consulate?
