Joe Biden will make a great president; here’s why – opinion – The Jerusalem Post

As president, he will continue to safeguard the Jewish state, the Jewish people, Jewish values, and guarantee the unbreakable support of the United States.

And you know what? After more than 45 years in and out of Washington, I believe him.

We Jews always want to know which candidate has Jews closest to him. His kids or grandkids, his running mate or their spouse, his most senior staff. Who visited a synagogue? Met again with a bunch of mainstream Jewish leaders or built a sukkah in his backyard by the pool. Well, Jewish values course through the heart of Joe Biden’s own candidacy, campaign, and career. His presidency will personify the best of our faith tradition, as has his entire career. Source: Joe Biden will make a great president; here’s why – opinion – The Jerusalem Post
