(((Nathan Guttman))), writing for the Jewis ‘Forward’, observes that in the first 100 Days of the Trump administration a “new Jewish elite” has risen to power.

“The more I learn about the administration, I learn that there are more Jews there who are active in Jewish life,” he said, pointing to Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, international negotiations envoy Jason Greenblatt, and David Friedman, the new ambassador to Israel, all of whom are Orthodox. “They have an intimate knowledge of the Jewish community and of Israel and that makes the difference.”
