Where Were We? American Jews, Israel and the 2010 Elections

November 3rd, 2010

J Street sees a silver lining in the challenges presented by the midterm election results -- Jewish support ran deep for Democratic candidates, President Obama, and a bold push for Middle East peace.    The American Jewish community stood its ground as a fundamentally liberal and progressive constituency in the midst of a huge Republican wave election. American Jews remain strongly supportive of President Obama and his Middle East policy, as well as the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement's positions on the Middle East. We invite supporters to find out more about the election results on a national telephone townaill with Jim Gerstein, pollster and American Jewish opinion expert, and J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami at Thursday on November 4th at 8:30pm Eastern. We will review how American Jews voted in the 2010 election and how Israel affected their votes.  [Click here to RSVP for our telephone townhall] [Click here to visit our special election website] Read More...
