Countering the Religious Left

As Richard Baehr pointed out to AT readers here, the Union for Reform Judaism, the national organization for Reform Jewish synagogues, has chosen to enter the political fray on the left, opposing President Bush and the War in Iraq. Today, the Republican Jewish Coalition responds, in the kick—off of a national advertising campaign giving voice to Jews who do not wish to be associated with the views of Rabbi Yoffie of the UFJ and others who speak in the name of Jews and Judaism and counsel a left wing agenda in the name of their faith.

The first ad is running today in the New York Times. Fortunately, you can view the ad here, without patronising that newspaper. Among the signatories is none other than our own chief political correspondent Richard Baehr.
