Obama to meet Jewish caucus


WASHINGTON (JTA) — President Obama is set to meet with the unofficial Jewish caucus in Congress.

Obama’s schedule for Tuesday includes a closed-door meeting in the evening with members of the Democratic Jewish delegations in both houses of Congress.

There was no word on what the meeting would address, but the White House has tried in recent weeks to mend fences with Israel and the organized American Jewish community after tensions arose when Israel announced a major building start in eastern Jerusalem during a March visit by Vice President Joe Biden.
