Zach Emanuel, the son of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem. The ceremony took place May 30 at the Davidson Center, located near the Western Wall. About 50 people, mostly family members, participated. Security was heavy for the family and guests; there had been fears that extremists would disrupt the ceremony. Press was also prevented from entering the area. Activists had heckled the Emanuel family three days earlier as it toured the Old City of Jerusalem.
