Washington - Obama Re-Elect Hires Jewish Outreach Official
Washington - Ira Forman, the former longtime executive director of the National Jewish Democratic council, will be the Obama re-elect’s Jewish outreach director, a Democratic source said this afternoon.
Forman, a party loyalist with deep roots in the complicated swirl of American Jewish politics, spent years (accurately) knocking down predictions that Jews would shift to the Republican Party, an will arrive at a complicated moment for Obama’s relations with Israel and the (not all that Jewish) American pro-Israel community.
Forman’s hire is part of a steady focus by Obama’s campaign on calming running dissatisfaction among Jewish Democrats.
