Subject: Did you hear the one about the blind rabbi?
This is no joke. There may be no other race in the country that so starkly illustrates the fundamental differences between the two parties as the New Jersey 5th Congressional district contest between Rabbi Dennis Shulman and the conservative Republican incumbent, Scott Garrett.
The candidacy of Dennis Shulman is an historic opportunity to elect an inspirational rabbi to Congress and in the process to defeat a five term incumbent congressman who is a right wing extremist on every issue, from choice and the environment to opposing the Voting Rights Act and actively supporting proselytizing at the Air Force Academy.
As a child, Rabbi Shulman lost his vision gradually, and was completely blind by college. Nonetheless, for the past thirty years, Dennis has been a practicing psychologist, educator, and author, and for the past five years, a rabbi as well.
Rabbi Shulman is committed to telling the truth and acting with integrity on the following issues:
• Iraq: Bringing our troops home
• Israel: Strengthening the strong alliance between the U.S. and Israel
• Healthcare: Too serious for partisan strife
• Labor: Protecting working families
• Environment: Developing a clean, green economy
• Reproductive Rights: Respecting a woman’s right to choose
Dennis would be the first blind member of Congress in generations... and the first rabbi ever. The race has been highlighted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and endorsed by the AFL-CIO. Shulman is supported by leading Democrats such as House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, Governor David Paterson, Senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez, Congressmen Steve Israel and Steve Rothman, and General Wesley K. Clark (ret.).
