This week, two Democratic activists have rolled out the Democratic equivalents.

“Joe Biden for President” buttons, bumper stickers, T-shirts, signs and yarmulkes, all in Hebrew, go on sale August 14 on the Web page

The nonprofit project was organized originally by Jewish Democratic strategist/activist Steve Rabinowitz and his business partner, currently on leave from their firm, and close Biden friend and uber-supporter Michael Adler of Miami.

Rabinowitz made a call for what calls campaign tchotchkes to Grossman Marketing Group, a 100-year-old company outside Boston founded by the grandfather of Steve Grossman, the former AIPAC president, former DNC chair and former Massachusetts State Treasurer. Grossman’s two sons run the company now.

Rabinowitz said all profits from the sales go to the Biden for President campaign and the Democratic Victory Fund.
