As Jewish Support for Obama Dwindles, Campaign Looks to Rabbis
President Obama’s re-election campaign announced yesterday the launch of Rabbis for Obama, an initiative aimed at rallying Jewish support for the president in the upcoming elections.
The group of over 600 rabbis from across the country seeks “to engage and mobilize grassroots supporters,” as its website indicates. The members of the group “represent themselves and do not reflect the views of any affiliated organizations.”
