Jews at the White House — A Thought Experiment

posted by David Klinghoffer

Just imagine: If the American Jewish community were known to stand predominantly for something grand, cosmic, eternal, permanent, and universal in significance, don’t you think the President of the United States would be likelier to listen to us when we […]

Jews at the White House — What Are “Jewish Concerns”? Just Israel?

posted by David Klinghoffer

Yesterday, 16 top American Jewish leaders, representing 14 major Jewish organizations, met with Barack Obama in the White House. They had the ear of the president of the United States. From news reports, it seems they chose to talk about […]
