Halie Soifer, the dierctor of the RJC’s counterpart, the Jewish Democratic Council of America, said on Twitter that the ad “won’t work.”

Since President Donald Trump “has been in office,” Soifer said, referring to polls following the 2018 midterm elections, “Jewish support for the GOP has been halved because Trump doesn’t share our values and Jews know the real shanda is in the White House.”
