The Washington Post
There is another
The premise of the July 19 Style article “Putting his faith in the Jewish vote” was that Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is the last Jewish member of Congress from New York City. The article missed or ignored that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez (D-N.Y.) proudly embraces her Jewish heritage, even if she does not practice the faith.
According to a December 2018 Post article, “Ocasio- Cortez explained that she was descended from Jews who fled Spain during the Spanish Inquisition.”

I have to wonder whether the person who wrote the photo caption that accompanied the article “Putting his faith in the Jewish vote” saw the photograph. The caption said Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) “takes a selfie with a voter.” Neither Nadler nor the unnamed voter was holding a phone or camera. In fact, the photographer’s hands and phone can be seen elsewhere in the picture. I suggest “poses for a photo with a voter” would have been more accurate.
