Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff and Ambassador Deborah Lipstadt, Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism, hosted a Sukkot celebration at the first national sukkah.

Ambassador Lipstadt is a family friend and reached out to ask if my five-year old son, Levi, could draw a picture for the Vice President’s sukkah. Levi, ecstatic and honored, ran to his art table and furiously began to draw. Levi was thrilled to be included in the Vice President’s celebration, and proud that his faith could be highlighted on a national platform.
