Irving Moskowitz Provided Major Funds To Ros-Lehtinen

(JTA) — The benefactor of a controversial Jewish development in eastern Jerusalem is a major donor to U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the new head of the House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee.

Irving Moskowitz, a retired casino magnate, and his wife, Cherna, gave the maximum $4,800 each to Ros-Lehtinen’s campaign in the most recent election cycle, Politico reported this week.

Cherna Moskowitz additionally donated $5,000 to NACPAC, a pro-Israel political action committee that contributed $10,000 to Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) in the cycle.

The demolition of the Shepherd Hotel began this week in the Arab neighborhood of Sheik Jarrah in eastern Jerusalem in order to make way for a development for 20 Jewish apartments funded by Moskowitz.
