More than 30 members of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council are preparing a letter to the entire council backing chairman Rabbi Irving “Yitz” Greenberg, who is under pressure to resign for his role in the pardon of financier Marc Rich. The pro-Greenberg letter came in response to another letter, signed by 18 current and former council members, that called on Greenberg to resign, saying he had unintentionally “entangled the museum in a political controversy inimical to its mission.”
