President-elect Donald Trump donated $10,000 to the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin Council, north of Yerushalayim, in 2003.

According to a tax filing, the Donald J. Trump Foundation made the donation to a U.S. nonprofit group that raises funds for a yeshivah in Beit El, a news organization affiliated with local councils in Yehudah and Shomron and other activities in the area.

Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel, lawyer David Friedman, is the nonprofit’s president.

Beit El founder Yaakov Katz revealed Trump’s donation to Israeli media on Sunday.

Trump’s transition team had no immediate comment.
