Jewish Dems Praise President’s Visionary and Practical Address

The National Jewish Democratic Council congratulates President Obama on a visionary and practical State of the Union address. NJDC Executive Director, Rabbi Jack Moline said:

“The President’s agenda- environmental responsibility, protection of voting rights, educational excellence, immigration reforms and financial security for all - speaks to the proactive values the Jewish community embraces, especially providing a livable minimum wage and pursuing gender equality in the marketplace.

NJDC’s work in 2014 will promote the values espoused by the President, with particular emphasis on promoting the landmark Affordable Care Act. NJDC will encourage all members, especially younger people, to register for health care coverage under the new provisions.

Last, but certainly not least, NJDC is grateful for the continued bi-partisan support for the State of Israel. Once again, the Administration has been explicit about supporting Israel’s security and essential national character.”
