Frum Jews supporting Hillary Clinton for president
As Election 2016 gets near, several influential Orthodox Jews are throwing their support behind Hillary Clinton for President. A editorial in The Jewish week by the OU's Rabbi Menachem Genack under the tittle "Why I support Hillary Clinton for president". The article does not mention the Rabbis long standing relationship with former President Clinton. David Lichtenstein CEO of the Lightstone group and author of Headlines book on current halachic debates is hosting a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in NYC in mid January 2016. Mr. Lichtenstein who used to live in Lakewood has previously hosted a fundraiser for Hillary in his Lakewood home back in November of 2007. There was a backlash to the visit and Mr. Lichtenstein claimed he was asked to host it by the Lakewood Yeshiva.
