Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his brother Hollywood Superagent Ari--and their families--are vacationing in the Czech Republic--along with grandparents, aunts and uncles. The trip comes a year after his daughter, Ilana observed her bat mitzvah at a Virginia synagogue and two years after Emanuel's son, Zach had his bar mitzvah in Israel, along with his cousin, Noah, one of Ari's sons. This trip, City Hall said, is a deferred celebration in Prague for Ilana and her cousin, Ari's other son, Ezra.
