Frum Lakewood contingent, led by leading Republican donor, gets rare access. Says one delegate: ‘Jewish conservatives?’
Tampa — Delegates to the Republican National Convention here this week were surprised to see men wear yarmulkes walking through the convention floor and mingling with other delegates.
“People kept coming over to us all night and asking what we were doing here,” said Judah Ribiat. “We said we believe in the principles and values of the Republican Party. One of them asked, ‘How can we get the other 80 percent of Jews to join you?’”
