Reform biennial to feature presidential candidates

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Union for Reform Judaism will host a forum for presidential candidates at its biennial. Chuck Todd of NBC’s “Meet the Press” will interview candidates one on one at the Nov. 7 event in Orlando, Fla., URJ said in a release Thursday. The candidates will also respond to questions from the 5,000 delegates and the movement’s leadership. Participating candidates will be announced closer to the event. A presidential forum at an event organized by a Jewish religious stream is unusual. Typically, the party’s Jewish affiliates will organize such forums. Powered By | Full Text RSS Feed
