A leading U.S. Reform rabbi is one of a dozen activists helping Democrats to “get religion.” Religion News Service this week listed Rabbi David Saperstein, director of Reform’s Religious Action Center in Washington, as one of the “Democratic Dozen,” a group it describes as “a new generation of activists, strategists and scribes — some Democrats, some not — helping the party to build relationships in the religious community, talk openly about spiritual journeys, and frame policies and platforms using moral terms.”
