Rahm Emmanuel Holds A Bar Mitzvah Celebration For His Son On A Sunday

I know that Rahm Emanuel speaks Hebrew, belongs to an Orthodox synagogue and visits Israel.

His wife, Amy Rule, apparently did not receive an Orthodox conversion.

Rabbi Asher Lopatin writes to the Failed Messiah blog in November 2008:

Please read and reread Wikipedia carefully: It does not mention who converted Amy Rule, nor does it say that it was an Orthodox conversion. Rahm Emanuel and his family are well liked members of our Modern Orthodox synagogue, but we are proud that Anshe Sholom attracts many members who would not necessarily classify themselves as Orthodox
