  • Race ends with GOP slamming Obama on Israel

    November 4, 2008 | 7:45 pm

    WASHINGTON (JTA) - As the presidential race came to a close, the McCain campaign ratcheted up its efforts to paint Barack Obama as a threat to Israel.

  • Jewish vote not a sure bet in swing state Nevada

    October 29, 2008 | 10:52 pm

    Support for presidential candidate Barack Obama remains strong among Nevada's Jewish population, but Jews can no longer be counted on as a bloc vote for the Democrats.

    It is a startling revelation to many Jewish leaders in the state, including Rabbi Felipe Goodman of Conservative...

  • Comedy icons back Obama with ‘Ain’t Funny’ TV spots [VIDEOS]

    October 29, 2008 | 3:06 am

    To emphasize that there's nothing amusing about next Tuesday's presidential election, the Jewish Alliance for Change has launched a series of "Ain't Funny" television and online commercials in support of Democratic candidate Barack Obama.

    The spots feature some of America's most...

    October 29, 2008 | 1:41 am

    I have been through three presidential election cycles while at The Jewish Journal.

    The candidates change. The issues ebb and flow. Administrations come and go. But Larry Greenfield -- that dude abides.

    On Thursday evening, Oct. 30, I'm going to see Larry. Again.

    First came Sarah Silverman, who shot a video promoting the pro-Obama ‘Great Schlep’, and then came the response from Jackie Mason, who called Silverman a yenta for suggesting some older Jews might be racists in a video circulated by the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC).

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    October 17, 2008 | 10:38 pm

    Barack Obama’s presidential campaign still won’t allow official advisers and surrogates to share a stage with the Republican Jewish Coalition, but, with the help of the NJDC and former Rep. Mel Levine, a Democratic replacement has been found for the debate Sunday at the Valley Cities JCC, hosted by the Council of Israeli Community in L.A. Taking Levine’s place is an adjunct professor of law at UCLA, David Kaye.

  • Don’t run Republican Jewish Coalition ads, pro-Israel group J Street tells Jewish newspapers

    By Ron Kampeas

    October 13, 2008 | 3:19 pm

    WASHINGTON (JTA)—A campaign by a new dovish pro-Israel group to get Jewish newspapers not to run Republican Jewish Coalition attack ads has raised questions about what’s kosher and what isn’t in this fraught political season.

    The new group, J Street, helped flood many Jewish...

    By The Web Guy

    October 4, 2008 | 4:12 pm

    First came Sarah Silverman with a video for The Great Schlep, an organized effort to get young Jews across America to visit older relatives in Florida to convince them to back Obama [WARNING ADULT LANGUAGE]:

    And here’s Jackie Mason’s response, gleefully e-mailed all over cyberspace yesterday (Silverman’s video was released Sept. 25) by the Republican Jewish Coalition:

    I'm happy to share this post from guest blogger Alissa Bader:


    The year 5769 is nearly upon us -- the time for apples and honey, new Hebrew calendars, and round challahs in the supermarket.

  • Republican Jews behind negative Obama poll *

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    September 18, 2008 | 8:21 pm

    Remember the Republican Jewish Coalition? (Yes, they really exist.) They’ve been pushing real hard for their guy, John McCain, and working against his rival, Barack Obama.

    This much is, obviously, to be expected. But Ben Smith at Politico reports that the RJC was also behind a poll...

    September 18, 2008 | 12:56 am

    Barack Obama told a conference call of rabbis this morning that he supports government funding for after-school and mentoring programs in faith-based schools.

  • VIDEO: Jewish voters targeted in ‘push polling’—RJC fesses up

    September 17, 2008 | 3:55 am

    Joelna Marcus tells JTA she was the target of a push poll because she is Jewish. A caller, pretending to be a pollster, tried to insinuate Barack Obama is pro-Palestinian.



    The Republican Jewish Coalition has admitted it sponsored a negative poll about Barack Obama.

    Democrats Call on GOP to Condemn Prager, Rep. Goode

  • GOP pro-Israel campaign is the real deal—why the hysteria?

    By Arnold Steinberg

    October 12, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Sure, the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has an agenda.
     The RJC wants Jews to become Republicans. So, the RJC buys ads in Jewish newspapers.
     
    Why the unbridled hysteria? Were the ads pornographic?
     
    For some liberals, free speech is selective. For them, (Jewish) community...

    Roberto Loiederman's article, "Living and Working [Il]legally in America" (Sept. 8), achieved its desired results. The Jewish guilt arose in me with each passing word like hot gases about to blow off the top of a volcano. How can I deny illegal Mexicans and others...

    Chamberlain Ad

    I do not know if I can communicate how deeply offended I was by the Republican Jewish Coalition's (RJC) Neville Chamberlain ad on page 6 of the Sept. 8 Jewish Journal. Besides the complete lack of intellectual honesty, the appalling lack of logical reasoning fails...

    Bill Boyarsky's article ("Needed: Rational Discussion," Aug. 18) was inaccurate and mean-spirited. He had the opportunity to dissent and speak up at the meeting of more than 400 attendees, but instead chose to vent to Journal readers who were not there and who could...
