Given the presidential elections scheduled for Nov. 3, important Jewish leaders have demonstrated their full support for the president, through an open letter sent on Oct. 24.
In the letter, 13 prominent representatives of Orthodox Judaism gave special thanks to the Trump administration for protecting First Amendment religious freedoms during the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic.
According to the Western Journal, the letter was initiated by Rabbi Moshe Margaretten, president and founder of the Tzedek Association in Brooklyn, New York. On Twitter Margaretten said that rabbis worked for months to collect the 13 signatures.
Mishchapa magazine announced the news on its Twitter account, calling it a historic letter from the top Orthodox rabbis in the United States supporting @realDonaldTrump.
“We write to express our deepest gratitude to you, Mr. President, especially in light of your recent declaration that houses of worship should be considered ‘essential,'” according to Fox News.
The letter included the signatures of some of the most prominent rabbis from around the world.
“You have given a powerful voice to what all good people know beyond any doubt: that now, more than ever, we must turn to Almighty G-d, fortifying our faith and staying true to our values in the face of these current tribulations,” the letter added.
In the letter, the rabbis further detailed that thanks to the president’s leadership, people from all backgrounds, beliefs, and denominations have been helped to get back on track amid the turbulence and uncertainty.
“It is precisely with this in mind that we feel so grateful that you, Mr. President, are indeed expressing that leadership we need so urgently, standing up for the first amendment rights, which is critical to help us weather to storm of the current pandemic,” the rabbis wrote.
As Fox News notes, citing psalms, the religious leaders blessed the president with the continued ability to “go from strength to strength, leading us forward toward ever greater good,” for which the president expressed his gratitude through Twitter.
According to an Ami magazine poll, 83 percent of Orthodox Jews would vote for President Trump. In contrast, 1,000 Orthodox Jews in 22 states reported that only 13 percent of those surveyed would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden, while 4 percent said someone else or noted that they were undecided.
