Getting invited to the White House for a Hanukkah party tonight prompted a great conversation over the weekend with Yadid. I am proud that he had the idea of writing the President a letter. I am honored to serve as his shaliach, emissary. I am curious what kind of response he will get. No matter what it is a great lesson in civics. Happy Hanukkah to everyone and here is the letter from Yadid to President Obama.
Dear President Obama,
Thank you for inviting my parents to your Hanukkah Reception. You are a amazing person and great president, so I will say it again Thank you. Here are a few questions I would like to ask you.
1. I’m honored that you hosted this reception, But why do it when we are only 2.11% of the american population?
2. What can I do to help this racial divide in our country?
3. What are your hopes and fears for the next administration?
Orlow P.S I’m 10 years
