More Tikkun Olam Paganism and Misrepresentation
The letter to the editor in this week's JP from Leslie Cohen Fargotstein
of Memphis, TN, in which she demands that Jews vote for Obama as part of
the realization of what she calls "Tikkun Olam," presents an opportunity

political fads generally foster social injustice.
4. It is a free country. You can vote for Obama if you want but do not
misrepresent your doing so as being some sort of Jewish ethical
