There are times when my own congregants will encourage me to speak about a political issue they endorse, but I respectfully decline. I'm not a politician and I'm not a political commentator.

Rabbis should not tell their communities how to vote. But preaching about how to vote is not the same as preaching about what values and priorities ought to be embodied in health care policy.
