Rouse speaks to Jewish leaders

11/02/2010

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- President Obama's new chief of staff reached out to Jewish leaders.

Pete Rouse, who replaced Rahm Emanuel, spoke Oct. 28 in a conference call with an array of Jewish leaders.

Some leaders complained Monday to JTA that the call held little substance; the only two Jewish speakers were from Chicago and are admirers of Obama.

Rouse established close relations with Jewish leaders when he was chief of staff to former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), the majority leader from 2001 to 2003.
