I have been working to try to get the Republican Jewish Coalition to create rabbis for Romney. I think we give the wrong impression to the public when there are rabbis for Obama and none for Romney. I don’t represent an organization and my views are personal.
Having been involved in political elections and worked with many candidates as a media coach, I can assure you that the media is interested in hearing if there are rabbis willing to put their names on a list for Romney. If you are interested in joining me in speaking out, please connect with other rabbis from other movements and have them contact me.
The “Rabbis for Obama” announcement came out of the Obama campaign. Some want to support Romney, but won’t sign unless we get some cooperation from the Romney people, not the RJC. The Romney people have to match the Obama people to some extent. Those of you who feel this way are asked to speak out to the Republican Party. I am one lonely individual who will get nowhere without your help. We need money for ads. Maybe Mr. Adelson can help…
