Vice President Joe Biden will assist in the lighting this year of the Hanukkah menorah on the ellipse in front of the White House.
It’s the question that’s been on everybody’s — okay, maybe just the Shmooze’s — mind since Ashley Biden’s big wedding to Jewish doctor Howard Krein: What’s the vice president like on the dance floor?
Vice President Biden’s daughter Ashley married Dr. Howard Krein, a Jewish doctor from Philadelphia, on Saturday at the bucolic St. Joseph’s of the Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware, which is the same church where she was baptized. In the official statement released by the vice president’s office, Joe and Dr. Jill Biden said, “We’re happy to welcome Howard into our family, and we wish them all the best in their new life together.”
Former TV journalist and newly minted politician Yair Lapid’s address to the Rabbinical Assembly’s National Convention in Atlanta yesterday got a lot of attention. In his remarks, he emphasized that he would work for equality for all religious movements in Israel — something that made the Conservative rabbis in the audience smile.
Don’t look for Vice President Joe Biden in Washington on Sunday. He’ll be in Detroit, possibly adding to his long and memorable list of gaffes as he speaks at the annual fundraising dinner for an area Orthodox day school.
Biden will also be stumping for Debbie Stabenow, the Democratic junior senator from Michigan, while in town. But it is expected that Jewish voters — Democratic but also possibly others — and supporters of Jewish education will likely turn up at the Detroit Marriott Hotel at the Renaissance Center for the Yeshiva Beth Yehudah dinner. There they will hear the vice president speak on U.S. foreign policy and support for Israel.
