In a Jerusalem Post article titled, "Sarah Palin may be hurting McCain among Jewish voters," Hilary Krieger reports on how the addition of Governor Sarah Palin impacts the Jewish vote. In the story Krieger mentions how Palin's selection has energized the Jewish community against the Republican ticket.
[T]he National Jewish Democratic Council has seized on to raise money from supporters.
"Palin is totally out of step with public opinion in the Jewish community" on domestic issues and has "zero foreign policy experience," the organization wrote in a fund-raising letter sent out last week. It also started an on-line petition asking: "McCain: What were you thinking when you selected Palin?"
At the same time, the Obama campaign has increased its Florida outreach efforts, announcing that it formed six Jewish Community Leadership Committees throughout the state comprised of backers involved in Jewish non-profits, schools, synagogues and other facets of the community. They also count several rabbis among their members, some of upwards of 400 who have joined the campaign effort as part of the group "Rabbis for Obama."
