See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Mondale-Ferraro Committee has announced that heads of the American rabbinate–representing Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbis across the United States–have endorsed Democratic Presidential candidate Walter Mondale and urged their colleagues to support the Democratic ticket, it was disclosed today.

Writing individually to the members of their separate rabbinical organizations–and in their personal capacity–were Rabbi Louis Bernstein, president of the Rabbinical Council of America (Orthodox); Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, executive vice president of the Rabbinical Assembly (Conservative) and Rabbi W. Gunther Plaut, president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (Reform). The organizations they head do not endorse candidates for public office, but individual members of the rabbinical bodies are free to do so.
