More mazel tov for Barack, and one for Rahm, too

A few more Jewish organizations have released letters and statements congratulating Barack Obama since our first post last week:

American Jewish World Service: "We are thrilled to have an incoming president who has voiced a passion for the pursuit of social justice around the world."

Union of Reform Judaism: "Your vision of a nation united by a new spirit of cooperation is one shared by Reform Jews throughout the country."

Rabbinical Assembly: We share so many ideals — the urgent need to strengthen America and keep her safe, protect our natural environment, create a secure Israel, assist democracies whenever we can and bring lasting peace to the world.

And Ameinu, the U.S. affiliate of the World Labor Zionist Movement, released a statement congratulating Obama’s newly-appointed chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel: "Congressman Emanuel’s strong commitment to Israel and to a negotiated peace between Israel and the Palestinians is indisputable."
