Description

The Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club of Boca Raton, Fla., faces allegations of anti-Semitism by the community and even Florida governor Jeb Bush. One and only one Jewish member was admitted four years ago after his Christian father-in-law wrote a scathing letter warning of consequences that might be brought by not admitting his son-in-law and daughter. Some members say attitudes at the elite club are gradually changing, while others allege there has never been any discrimination. The current commodore says the business of the private club is nobody's concern, but because the club has more than 400 members, it is subject to Florida state law.
