And to prove his love for the Jews he’s holding a big event in a Philadelphia-area synagogue Monday on behalf of the Obama for America campaign. DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) is scheduled to appear at the Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park.
Besides misspelling Israel, the campaign event at Keneseth Israel directly conflicts with an IRS rule stating that nonprofit organizations, such as religious institutions, prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign.
But, who cares?
After all, he’s Barack Obama.
UPDATE: This came from the Obama folks–
Hi Jim – I saw your post about the typo on the OFA PA invitation to the Jewish Americans for Obama event in Elkins Park, PA.
On background – we noticed the error after a few of the invitations were sent and corrected it immediately, attached is a copy of the corrected flier for your reference.

But they’re still holding their campaign stop at a synagogue.
