Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Emily L. Hauser (Open Zion, In My Head )

On The Posner Show, Sarah speaks with Emily about Republican efforts to win over Jewish voters. Michele Bachmann offended some congregants at a Chicago synagogue when she showed up for Yom Kippur services. Emily argues that Jews have become a “set piece” in the presidential campaign. As Sheldon Adelson’s millions are being spent on persuading a tiny fraction of Jews to vote for Romney, who are Republicans really talking to when they talk about Israel? A new poll of American Jewish opinion confirms once again that Jews are overwhelmingly liberal—but do they support Obama’s Israel policy? And why doesn’t the poll ask about the occupation? Plus: Emily reminds us that Israel is real.
