Passover comes early with Glenn Beck’s exit?

This story from RNS mentions that Jews are divided in their support and loathing of the now-former FOX News commentator Glenn Beck. But they focus on Jewish Funds for Justice, which is rejoicing Beck’s, um, exodus on the eve of Passover:

Jewish Funds for Justice has proclaimed victory in a statement that uses the grateful Passover chant Dayenu! — “It would have been enough!”– to celebrate the anti-Beck campaign’s fruitful end.

“If the Jewish community and our allies cried out in one voice when Beck compared Reform Judaism to radical Islam, Dayenu!” the group said in a statement. “If thousands of our supporters invested in and sustained us to do this work, Dayenu!”

The statement concludes, “This Passover, let us celebrate the expanded freedom in our public discourse.”

This is not Beck’s first appearance on this blog, not even this year. But I suspect there will be less reason to mention him going forward as he moves from prominence.

P.S. This post was not paid for by George Soros.
