Republican Congressional Candidate Joe Kaufman rebuked Debbie Wasserman Schultz for what he called “yet another travesty to Jews bordering on sacrilege by dragging politics into a synagogue.”
DNC Chair/Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Rebuked For Dragging Politics into a Synagogue Causing Uproar and a Loss of Funding Support
NORTH MIAMI, FL., June 07, 2012.-- Republican Congressional Candidate Joe Kaufman (http://www.kaufmanforcongress.com/)
“A Synagogue is not a place for politics and the Congresswoman should know better than to promote her boss there during Shabbat Services,” charged Kaufman who is seeking to unseat her in the 23rd District.
DNC Chair/Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s partisan political tactics have brought an end to the 70 year-old relationship between Temple Israel of North Miami and one of its past presidents and most respected members, the honorable Stanley Tate, said Kaufman (www.kaufmanforcongress.com)
Both Wasserman Schultz and Tate were both scheduled to address the Temple Israel congregation regarding U.S.-Israeli relations, but she couldn’t handle the fact Tate would be contradicting her partisan talking points and objected so forcefully to Tate’s speaking that the Temple’s Board of Trustees decided to disinvite Tate, who in turn resigned from the congregation, protesting their allowing the politically motivated agenda of Wasserman Schultz to intrude into a holy place.
Wasserman Schultz then took advantage of the opportunity to promote President Obama during the Shabbat Services in total disregard of the inappropriateness of bringing politics into a house of worship, he added.
