Below are two videos of Jewish Community Leaders speaking about their support for Senator Barack Obama. Their moving and heartfelt messages are worthy of watching – 60 seconds – and speak to the strong support for Senator Obama in the Illinois Jewish community, those that know him BEST. Please pass these on to all who would be interested.

I'm sorry, Rabbi. I'm sure you do good work, but you simply do not know how to think or how to lead. Instead of comforting the younger generation by finding ways for us to be Jewish, you comfort yourself and your cohort by finding ways to shift the burden of guilt.
