A majority of American Jews are welcoming of immigrants, favorably disposed towards American Muslims, support legalizing same-sex marriage, favor legal abortions and oppose overturning the recent health care law, according to a Jewish Values Survey released Tuesday.

It is perhaps no wonder then that the campaigns of this year’s Republican presidential candidates have had little resonance with most American Jews.

I assume that to be the case because of the tone of some of the postings, which is, shall we say, dismissive of my point of view.
