You serve as Chairman and Executive Vice-Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which calls itself the “voice of organized American Jewry.” According to your website, you’ve issued 26 press releases since Donald Trump became the de facto Republican presidential nominee in early May. Not a single one mentions him.

[...] On December 7 of last year, Trump proposed a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” For a week, you said nothing. Then, when contacted by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, you said you opposed Trump’s plan. But you never issued a press release. No condemnation appears on your website.
