A video in support of President Barack Obama produced by the sister of comedian Sarah Silverman has begun airing in Florida.
The video by Rabbi Susan Silverman was posted last week on Facebook. It shows Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Israelis throughout the country praising Obama’s support for Israel’s security.
A 30-second version aired in key Florida television markets Oct. 22 during the foreign policy debate between Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Susan Silverman, who lives in Israel with her husband, Arava Power CEO Yosef Abramowitz, and their five children, became involved in making the video after asking her famous sister to make a video about Israelis’ support for Obama.
Sarah Silverman made “The Great Schlep” video in support of Obama four years ago to convince her grandparents and other older Jews to vote for Obama. Earlier this year she made a raunchy video asking casino mogul Sheldon Adelson to switch his support to Obama in return for sexual favors. — jta
