(JTA) – The Obama re-election campaign is launching its outreach to Jews with a mass conference call.
Top campaign officials will address listeners in the call, which is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, a top Jewish outreach official told JTA.
Jewish supporters will be alerted to the call’s details Monday afternoon, the official said.
The call is taking place now to arm Obama supporters with arguments ahead of the Jewish High Holidays, the official said.
Also in the works is a dedicated page on the Obama for America website, one of the first to be launched to a Democratic constituency, which should be rolled out in the next few days.
Jewish support for President Obama continues to drop, but maintains its traditional lead over general American support for the president, a Gallup poll showed.
Daily tracking polls in August and September show support for Obama among Jewish voters at 54 percent, 13 points ahead of the national figure.
