Ridiculous! Orthodox Jews, including ultra and modern, comprise about ten percent of the Jewish population in the U.S. So the Rabbi can’t claim to represent American Jewry. He can’t even claim to represent the Orthodox Jews since he is a Modern Orthodox and that is only about 30% of America’s Orthodox Jews. What he does represent is the 5-10% of American Jews who vote Republican. http://www.pewforum.org/2015/08/26/a-portrait-of-american-orthodox-jews/
How is this justified?
