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.
