Following Democratic Senator Joseph Lieberman's nomination as the running mate of Al Gore in the 2000 United States presidential election, the Jewish community responded. Michael Granoff set out to collect sermons documenting this response.
The rabbinic community responded with both pride and concern. Joseph Lieberman was an active Orthodox Jew, who walked to Congress when votes conflicted with the Sabbath. While many rabbis made a point of noting that they could not endorse a political candidate, they supported and applauded what the nomination meant for the position of the practicing Jew in American society. These sermons represent a cross-section of Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbis in the United States (with a geographic focus on the East Coast) reacting to the candidacy. The sermons are arranged alphabetically by rabbi's name.
|The papers are organized in a single series.|
