Miami’s Temple Israel on Thursday canceled a program featuring Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz after a high-profile Republican donor quit the congregation to protest the top Democratic congresswoman’s speech.

Stanley Tate, a well-known philanthropist and prominent Republican who started Florida’s pre-paid college tuition program, resigned from the temple after he learned Wasserman Schultz would be talking about Israel following services on Friday night, and that he wouldn’t get an opportunity for rebuttal.
