Donald Trump's election has exacerbated – and reflected – divisions in our country. It is also impacting the Jewish community which is increasingly divided over issues like Israel, economics and culture. President Trump received 25 percent of the Jewish vote, despite widespread shock from the more liberal, and intellectual, parts of the Jewish community. Should more Jews be voting for the GOP? Do we have more to gain and less to fear from aligning our votes with the right or the left? Considering the issues that led to President Trump's victory, including the decline of the middle class, rising inequality, political correctness, and deindustrialization, who should Jews support?
