Three experts in Jewish politics will discuss how Jews voted in November's presidential and congressional election at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center in Newton on Monday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m.

According to the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston, Rabbi David Saperstein, the director of the Religious Action Center (RAC) of Reform Judaism in Washington, D.C. who was named the most influential rabbi in the county in 2009 by Newsweek, will be one of the featured speakers.

Rabbi Saperstein will be joined by Jewish Daily Forward editor and author Jane Eisner (Taking Back the Vote: Getting American Youth Involved in our Democracy), and professor and author Debra Dash Moore (American Jewish Identity Politics).

The discussion will be moderated by Leonard Fein, an author and essayist whose columns have appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, and The Nation.

The program is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations discussion series and is titled "Are Jews Still Liberal?"

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at www.bostonjcc.org/artsevents, or by contacting boxoffice@jccbg.org or 617-965-5226.
