Obama for America today announced the launch of Pennsylvania Rabbis for Obama, a campaign initiative to engage and mobilize grassroots supporters. This group of over 613 rabbis — more than double the number of when Rabbis for Obama launched in 2008 — from across the country and across all Jewish denominations recognize that the President has been and will continue to be an advocate and ally on issues important to the American Jewish community. That is why they are committed to re-electing President Obama and actively doing their part to move our country forward.
This list of rabbis represents a broad group of respected Jewish leaders from all parts of the country. These rabbis mirror the diversity of American Jewry. Their ringing endorsement of President Obama speaks volumes about the President’s deep commitment to the security of the state of Israel and his dedication to a policy agenda that represents the values of the overwhelming majority of the American Jewish community
said Ira Forman who is the Jewish Outreach Director for the campaign.
They are proud of the President’s record and leadership in restoring long term growth of middle class jobs, ensuring that quality education and health care are more accessible and affordable and standing up for a woman’s right to choose. The President believes that we are all in it together, and is committed to fighting for policies that give every American, no matter their background, the opportunity to succeed.
