JTA Twitter 50: Jacob Kornbluh


Jacob Kornbluh@jacobkornbluh

Those fascinated by the intersection of Jewish life and D.C. politics devour Kornbluh’s work.

Kornbluh writes the Jewish Insider newsletter, which aggregates all the Jewish Beltway news of the day and provides interviews of Jewish lawmakers and commentators. It finds the Jewish nugget or angle or inside joke in every story — political or not — where one exists.

Kornbluh also attends many Jewish organizational events, taking the community’s temperature on a range of political issues.

Kornbluh is often the first to call the Twittersphere’s attention to these stories in a way that feels organic, not one that screams “we awkwardly tacked on a Jewish angle.”
