It seems that Obama has no shortage of Jewish celeb supporters such as Tory Burch, Jesse Eisenberg and Ben Stiller, to name a few. But Jewish celebs have been showing up at the Republican National Convention. As the RNC wraps up, some familiar names have surfaced:

Rockstar Rabbi Meir Soloveichik was asked to deliver the opening night invocation of the convention on Tuesday. Comedian Andy Kindler has been working as a correspondent for David Letterman at this week’s convention. [Geraldo Rivera]( ( ‘Geraldo Rivera’) interviewed the gospel quartet, The Oak Ridge Boys. And Sex and the City actor Evan Handler, who said he ‘despises’ Republicans, was there with Carol Kane and Rachel Harris to support the non-partisan group, ‘The Creative Coalition.’

Will Romney be able to schmooze his way into getting more support from the Jewish faction? Maybe these Jewish celebs will grease the wheel.
