A political action committee preparing the ground for a Hillary Rodham Clinton run for the presidency launched a Jewish outreach.

Jewish Americans Ready for Hillary launched on Tuesday afternoon, just before the Shavuot holiday.

It is attached to Ready for Hillary, a so-called Super PAC founded in January 2013 by former staffers and loyalists to the former first lady, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York.

Among those spearheading the outreach are Steve Rabinowitz, a Washington publicist close to a number of national Jewish groups who is a veteran of the Clinton White House communications team; Marc Stanley, the immediate past chairman of the National Jewish Democratic Council; and Fran Katz Watson, a veteran fundraiser for Democratic and pro-Israel causes.

Clinton, who lost her bid for the Democratic presidential nod in 2008 to Barack Obama, has not yet announced her intention to run again for the presidency.

Super PACS may raise and spend unlimited funds but are prohibited from donating directly to candidates. Ready for Hillary has so far raised close to $6 million.
