Israeli ambassador Michael Oren attended the annual White House dinner celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The Wednesday dinner was an "iftar," when observant Muslims break their daylight fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Along with Oren envoys from some 35 nations with significant Muslim populations were present, as well as members of the American Muslim community.
In a note on Facebook, Oren noted that three years ago he was the first Israeli ambassador to attend the White House dinner and was "deeply honored."
