The final push for the Jewish vote: From Barbra Streisand to Bryna Franklin


Both parties are making their final push for the Jewish vote in the last days before the election. Democrats are bringing out their big Jewish guns: Alan Dershowitz, Ed Koch (note the conspicuous menorah in the background) and, yes, Barbra Streisand.

The Republican Jewish Coalition, for its part, has a new video out in its "buyer’s remise" series. This one is from Bryna Franklin, a former chair of Democrats Abroad Israel and a self-described lifelong Democrat.

Meanwhile, the Emergency Committee for Israel is robo-calling against the president left and right (and drawing some serious scolding from fact checkers).


And the Jewish Council for Education and Research is urging young Jews to persuade their zaydes to support the president’s reelection.
