Jewish Voting Patterns and the 2012 Election
Jewish Voting Patterns and the 2012 Election |
Reception following the program
Ohio will be a critical state again in the 2012 elections. Jews will be important in the Ohio vote and in many other states. So, what issues are most important to Jewish voters? Have their priorities changed? Which way have Jewish voters gone historically? Are there regional differences in the Jewish vote?
Learn the answers to these questions and much more from some of the country’s top experts on Jews and voting. Panelists include Professors Steven Cohen and Ira Sheskin who are scholars in Jewish demography, Ohio State Professors Herb Asher and Herb Weisberg, who are experts on voting patterns, and Joyce Garver Keller, executive director of Ohio Jewish Communities, who works closely with Jewish communities across Ohio. The program will be conducted in a fast-moving debate-style format with time afterwards for questions from the audience.
