JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Activists heckled White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel as he and his family toured the Old City of Jerusalem in honor of his son's bar mitzvah.
Emanuel and his entourage on Thursday visited the newly restored Huvra synagogue, amid shouts of "anti-Semite."
When the family arrived at the Western Wall, Rahm Emanuel did not approach the wall, though his son did, the Jerusalem Post reported,
Heavy security surrounded the family during their tour of Jerusalem, according to reports.
