Far-right activist Itamar Ben-Gvir has made an attempt to prevent the planned bar mitzva of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's son.

Ben-Gvir reportedly sent a letter to Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Wednesday, claiming that the planned event location, the Davidson Center (just inside Dung Gate in the Old City), has no permit for such activities, and asking him to prevent the event from taking place.
