    Jewish Groups React To Trump’s Supreme Court Pick
    From the Times Of Israel:
    Almost immediately after President Trump announced federal judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court Monday night, Jewish groups and leaders expressed concern for what his confirmation would mean for the future of the court and its impact on American life.
    “We are concerned that Judge Kavanaugh’s judicial record does not reflect the demonstrated independence and commitment to fair treatment for all that is necessary to merit a seat on our nation’s highest court,” Anti-Defamation League chief Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement.
    However, at least one US Jewish group conveyed excitement and approval. Shortly after Trump announced his selection at the White House, the Republican Jewish Coalition tweeted: “Congratulations to Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family. @POTUS made another great pick. We look forward to his confirmation!”
