Go Rabbis for Obama!

Big, big kudos to Chicago-area rabbis Steve Bob and Sam Gordon for organizing Rabbis for Obama! As of this writing over 400 rabbis (and counting) have signed up to show their support. And this just in: yesterday 900 rabbis joined Obama for a conference call in which he answered questions and spoke eloquently about a number of critical issues facing American Jews (and all Americans for that matter). He also offered this trenchant Rosh Hashanah message:

And I know that the Shofar is going to be blown in your synagogues over Rosh Hashanah and there are many interpretations of its significance. One that I have heard that resonates with me is rousing us from our slumber so that we recognize our responsibilities and repent for our misdeeds and set out on a better path. The people in every community across this land join our campaign and I like to think that they are sounding that Shofar and to rouse this nation out of its slumber and to compel us to confront our challenges and ensure a better path. It’s a call to action. So as this New Year dawns, I am optimistic about our ability to overcome the challenges we face and the opportunity that we can bring the change we need not only to our nation but also to the world

I’m proud to be on record as a Rabbi for Obama. Here’s hoping that Americans heed the call of the Shofar and awaken from their eight-year slumber this New Year…

    Obama supporters are foolish to think that he will never betray them.
    Obama was a close friend of Pastor Wright for TWENTY YEARS.
    Obama threw Wright under the bus for personal ambition.
    McCain would not betray his country even after 5 years of torture.
    You can put lipstick on a traitor, but he’s still a traitor.
