Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump will be part of the delegation going to Israel next month for the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, according to an Israeli news program.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who is Jewish, will lead the group of more than 250 U.S. delegates, including 40 members of the Senate and House of Representatives, Channel 10 news reported Sunday, citing unnamed Israeli officials.
Among those mentioned in the report as planning to attend the May 14 dedication are Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Lindsay Graham, as well as special Middle East peace envoy Jason Greenblatt. The delegation also will include Jewish leaders and heads of pro-Israel Christian organizations.
A White House spokeswoman said that “there are no announcements at this time.”
The move is scheduled for the anniversary of the founding of the modern State of Israel according to the Gregorian calendar. PJC
