Chuck Todd to moderate presidential candidates’ forum at Reform biennial


WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Union for Reform Judaism will host a forum for presidential candidates at its biennial moderated by “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

Todd will interview candidates one on one at the Nov. 7 event in Orlando, Florida, URJ said in a release Thursday. The candidates will also respond to questions from the 5,000 delegates and the movement’s leadership.

Participating candidates will be announced closer to the event.

A presidential forum at an event organized by a Jewish religious stream is unusual. The party’s Jewish affiliates typically organize such forums.
