Jewish supporters of the presidential bid of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) are selling “Obama ’08” yarmulkes to raise funds. The jewsforobama.blogspot.com Web site is marketing what it calls “Obama-kahs” for $5 plus $5 for shipping. “The yarmulkes are professionally made of ivory white suede, with ‘Obama ’08’ printed in blue, and the campaign’s logo directly above the text,” the Web site says.
The aim is to distribute them before the High Holidays so they will be visible in synagogues.
