The editor of Ami Magazine acknowledged in this week’s edition that the cover of last week’s issue depicting the White House draped in Nazi flags with Nazi storm troopers marching in front “was insensitive at best.”

Rabbi Yitzchok Frankfurter admitted the error in a message at the end of a letter to the editor from Miriam Schlesinger, who wrote that she had read the rabbi’s apology last week in the online edition of The Jewish Week.

Publication’s cover picture of swastika-adorned White House brought readers’ criticism and editor’s apology.
