NEW YORK – Jill Biden, the wife of US Vice President Joe Biden, told a group of American Jewish women that she was praying for “lasting peace in Gaza.”

Jill Biden’s comments on Sunday, during a speech at the Jewish Federations of North America’s annual Lions of Judah conference in New York City, led some to wonder if she had meant to say “Israel” rather than “Gaza,” according to BuzzFeed.

The speech focused on the philanthropic efforts of Jewish women in the United States.

Neither Biden nor Jewish federation officials responded to BuzzFeed’s request for clarification.
