In this week’s podcast Forward editor Jane Eisner makes a case for why George Washington’s famed letter to the Jews of Newport, R.I., should be liberated from a Maryland vault and placed on public display. Then staff writer Nathan Guttman, opinion editor Gal Beckerman and Forward Fellow Naomi Zeveloff discuss what a new poll showing widespread Jewish support for President Obama means for the 2012 election. And in our recurring segment, The Best Jewish Story That Didn’t Make the Paper, Naomi discusses Jesus’ circumcision, as it is depicted in a historic stained glass window.
