Hatch: Jewish Senators Liked Song

We’re just glad to have them as Tablet Magazine readers

Print Email

Jeffrey Goldberg, who originally persuaded Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to write a Hanukkah song for Tablet Magazine, reports that (according to Hatch himself) Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D-New Jersey), Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin), and Joe Lieberman (I-Connecticut) all the loved the song. Frankly, though, Jewish senators’ reactions are not that surprising. What would be intriguing to know is how the senior chamber’s other Mormons feel about it, and whether they agree with their colleague from Utah, that: “Anything I can do for the Jewish people, I will do.” Sens. Robert Bennett (R-Utah), Michael Crapo (R-Idaho), Harry Reid (D-Nevada), and Gordon Smith (R-Oregon): please get in touch. There are things in the world besides health-care reform, you know.
