Shlomo Kahn (“Strange Bedfellows,” June 16) zogt emes (speaks the truth). Indeed, from a Jewish standpoint, Donald Trump is the authentic biblical candidate for president.
After all, the real estate mogul’s most famous book is the “Art of the Deal.” The Hebrew word for “deal” (i.e., contractual arrangement) is, of course, brit. The Donald is the “master of the deal,” or ba’al habrit, making him quite literally the “covenantal” candidate.
Moreover, according to the hoary rabbinic art of gematriah, Trump’s name even yields the equivalent numerical value of “messiah, son of David!” For Torah-true Jews, the electoral choice in November is clear. Just sayin’.
