It’s not clear how many Jewish leaders are invited to the meeting set for Tuesday, or what the “pertinent” issues are, or who the “key officials” are.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said he will soon be ready to release his Israeli-Palestinian peace plan. Jewish community officials also are concerned about security since an alleged white supremacist massacred 11 Jewish worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue in the worst attack ever on U.S. Jews.
