The Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City museum told the leaders of the Jewish Leadership Conference they would cancel their event unless they disinvited Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. DeSantis, a vigorous supporter of Israel and many Jewish causes
Elliott Abrams is the chairman or the organization and he along with Eric Cohen CEO of Tikvah operate the Jewish Leadership Conference. The annual event celebrates the Jewish people and Israel. This years’ event was scheduled to be held at the museum on June 12 and feature DeSantis as a speaker.
Shame on the Museum of Jewish Heritage for politicizing their institution by banning @GovRonDeSantis, a stellar gov & friend of Jews/Israel!
It's divisive and only harms the museum!
I won't visit again until the ban is rescinded and you shouldn't either!https://t.co/HgdB7hVCFE
