A Jewish Voter’s Guide to the Candidates as Wisconsin Votes

By this point, the five main presidential candidates still standing have uttered oceans of words on their foreign policy views.

Some statements contradict each other. Others just vary, or are nuanced, according to the candidate’s audience or circumstances. Trying to figure out what they add up to in terms of clear stands on specific issues is not always easy.

But here is the Forward’s best attempt to do so for all of them; our one-stop reference for readers on key issues of Jewish concern.

Promoting Democracy in the Middle East

War in Syria

Iran Nuclear Deal
