Obama has a busy week

Here are, according to Haaretz, some of the highlights of his schedule:
Earlier on Tuesday, President Obama dropped by a meeting between the heads of the Conservative Jewish community and White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew.

According to a statement later released, Obama thanked the leaders for their work on improving communities around the country and reiterated his unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security and the steps his Administration has taken to enhance it, including the "toughest-ever" sanctions on Iran.

On Wednesday afternoon, President Obama will host a White House reception to honor the Jewish community's contributions to American history and culture.  In the recent years, the event has become a tradition.
