Jews, Muslims Up on Capitol Hill

The number of Jews on Capitol Hill increased to an all-time high with the results of Tuesday's elections. In the Senate, their sum expanded from 11 to 13 with the additions of Bernie Sanders (Vermont-I) and Benjamin Cardin (Maryland-D). In the House, their tally rose from 26 to 30 despite the loss of Sanders and Cardin from their ranks. Muslims got their first representative in Congress as Minnesotans chose their first black member of Congress with the election of Democrat Keith Ellison.


I read an article on this in the Jerusalem Post yesterday but I couldn't find it today. Be careful: when I searched for it today, a David Duke website was at the top of the list.
