Dozens of rabbis have come out to support an economy plan presented by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, the Jewish Press website reports today (March 6, 2016).
The group -- which calls itself Rabbis for Economic Justice -- wrote on "Jews for Bernie" Facebook page:
"We cannot ignore the disparities in a system which generates wealth for so few, while so many are suffering."
On March 3, 45 rabbis across the spectrum signed the petition backing Sanders' economic policies. The group said it does not necessarily endorse Sanders' bid for the nomination, but rather his economic views.
