That’s problematic for Michael Steinhardt – president of the Judy and Michael Steinhardt Foundation and co-founder of Birthright Israel – who paid for the six-figure Times ad.

Other fun facts to know and tell about Mr. Steinhardt:

• He’s a “hedge-fund pioneer” who has endowed NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to the tune of $20 million

• He’s one of the big money GOP donors (along with casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and venture capitalist Ken Abramowitz) who are open to grubstaking multiple candidates, but not Rand Paul

• He’s no fan of Warren Buffett

• His brother-in-law is  FOX television host John Stossel

The hardworking staff, which is Jewish by attraction, has no official position on any of the above.
