Every year, American Jews spend $3.4 billion to $9 billion dollars on charity. That’s $6.8 billion to $18 billion every two years. In 1997, $1.6 billion was spent on Jewish Federations. Jews are 44% of leading philanthopists. Total Jewish annual household income is $156.6 billion.
Hmm. If Jews can spend $3.4 billion a year on charity, why can’t they spend $659.9 million every two years on federal politics? Another mathematical impossibility?
