Jewish leaders wants to meet with Adrienne Bankert for a chit-chat

Some Jewish leaders in Sacramento County want to meet with Adrienne to try to educate her most likely of how its like to be a Jew. One person has said they were offened by her comments David Wechsler-Azen at Beth Shalom.

"As somebody who has been a poor Jew, as someone regularly approached by poor Jews for help, it’s just so factually inaccurate," Wechsler says. "It’s just really offensive for someone to portray Jews that way.

"She really needs to be made aware of all the Jewish philanthropies that make sure everyone’s taken care of. That’s the underlying Jewish premise: reach out your hand to the needy."

We'll see how the next step goes.
