From Allison Hoffman’s profile in Tablet of Eric Cantor, majority leader, the highest-ranking Jewish elected public official in American history.
Cantor’s older brother, Stuart, is on the board of the congregation and of Richmond’s sole Jewish day school; in 2002, Stuart and his wife, Joan, also helped sponsor the annual dinner of the One Israel Fund, which provides aid for Jewish families living in the West Bank.
Imagine the hue and cry if some politician’s brother was supporting Hamas? Or imagine if a high Pentagon official had helped start a group called One Jerusalem. Wait, that happened: Doug Feith, the guy who planned the Iraq war. And no one cared then either!
