First, they bagged Ed Koch and Michael Bloomberg. Now Jewish Democrats are crowing over their biggest catch yet: Barbra Steisand.

In a video produced by the National Jewish Democratic Council, Babs go through all the Jewish-voter outreach talking points: economy, women’s rights, LGBT equality, Medicare and of course, Israel and Iran.

“Mitt Romney does not share our values,” she says, “I know Barack Obama does.”

The Streisand appeal was also sent out to Jewish voters in swing states via robo-calls this week.
