President Trump hosted the annual Hanukkah reception at the White House Thursday evening, a day after his controversial decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Christian vice-president Mike Pence, Sheldon Adelson, the hotel magnate and Zionist donor, and Jewish Republican legislators were among those who attended and ate kosher lamb chops, just as in past years, for White House Hanukkah parties. The contentious decision has heightened tensions in the area, which is already fraught, and many took to Ivanka's post to express their concerns using a hashtag in Arabic that translates to "Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine" as well as "Free Palestine", and #SavePalestine.

In September 2016, during the general election campaign, Trump released a doctor's note that included some medical information. "We are proud to stand with the people of Israel and to renew our enduring bond".

That the lamp burned for eight days - the miracle celebrated by Jews around the world on Hanukkah - shows "God's presence in his dwelling place and a symbol of the faith and resilience of the Jewish people".

"May you all have a truly blessed and happy Hanukkah", Trump said.

"I am also proud that my attractive grandchildren - Arabella, Joseph and Theodore - have joined us tonight right here as we celebrate with all of you the sacred traditions that they observe each year at home", Trump said. And Soloveichik recited a traditional prayer that he said has additional meaning this year.

Trump struggled with the pronunciation of Soloveichik's name.

Until Trump's decision, the US - along with most other countries - has maintained its embassy in Tel Aviv, saying the status of Jerusalem should be resolved between the sides in negotiations.

Mr. Trump capped off his speech by introducing Louise Lawrence-Israels, a Holocaust survivor who lived the first three years of her life in an attic in Amsterdam.
