"We are deeply alarmed by recent rhetoric from certain members within our caucus, including just last night, that has disparaged us and called into question our loyalty to our nation", they wrote in the letter.
The Democratic congresswoman shared a tweet late Sunday on House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy pledging to take "action" in response to her support for movements to boycott and sanction Israel over its treatment of Palestinians.
House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler, also of NY, said Ms Omar's choice of words was "deeply disappointing and disturbing". "We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments".
Two Jewish congressional Democrats have asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to denounce Rep. Ilhan Omar after the Muslim congresswoman claimed Israel is so influential in Washington because "it's all about the Benjamins" - meaning Jewish money.
"It's all about the Benjamins baby", Omar tweeted, referring to hip hop slang for hundred dollar bills, implying payoffs to her critics.
But the tweet was swiftly condemned by high-profile figures on both sides of the aisle, including a former US ambassador to Israel and Chelsea Clinton, whose husband is Jewish.
Omar recently apologized for a 2012 tweet in which she accused Israel of "hypnotizing" the world, acknowledging that she had unwittingly echoed anti-Semitic themes.
Omar's unusually outspoken criticism of the pro-Israel lobby has rattled some of her Democratic colleagues.
"At a time when anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise, our leaders should not be invoking hurtful stereotypes and caricatures of Jewish people to dismiss those who support Israel", Rose continued. In 2018, AIPACspentmore than $3.5 million lobbying for pro-Israel measures, according to lobbying disclosure filings maintained by the Senate's Office of Public Records. "This is anti-Semitic", Daily Wire journalist Kassy Dillon wrote.
Soon after, Omar responded to Clinton, saying, "Chelsea - I would be happy to talk".
He went on to emphasize in a further tweet that now she will have no influence in her party on the issue, but that it could have been different "Had she come to DC, shown sympathy and empathy for Israelis and Palestinians, learned to assign responsibility in appropriate measure to both sides, considered the totality of U.S. interests in the region, maybe taken a trip to learn". "And I believe we can do that without criticizing people for their faith", Omar tweeted at the former first daughter.
