John McCain to Host Tele-Town Hall With Jewish Leaders Nationwide

ARLINGTON, VA – McCain-Palin 2008 announced today that John McCain will host a tele-town hall with Jewish leaders from across the country at 10:30 a.m. EDT on Sunday, October 19th. These leaders include rabbis and lay leaders from around the country, with representation from groups like Chabad-Lubavitch, Agudath Israel, Orthodox Union, Young Israel, in addition to Orthodox, Conservative and Reform Rabbis.

Senator Joe Lieberman will participate and introduce Senator McCain on the call.

Also participating will be Jewish leaders representing groups under the umbrella of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations. The call will allow Senator McCain to have a dialogue with Jewish leaders and discuss issues critical to the Jewish community such as Israel, national security and the economy.
