This three-part series will focus on Jews and electoral politics in an historical perspective. As we prepare to vote in November, we will take a step back to reflect on Jews as voters, as candidates, and as a campaign issue in the modern period. There have been many campaigns in which Jews have played an important part and issues about which Jews have been deeply divided. Take a step back and revisit Jewish electoral politics of times gone by.
