Even though pro-Israel
groups have generally been
held at arm's length, the ad-
ministration has appeared un-
usually sensitive to the nuances
that can make or break an ad-
ministration's relationship with
Jewish voters.
The source of that new Jew-
ish savvy, say several sources
here, is George Stephana-
polous, the former communi-
cations director who is one of
the president's closest advisers
and a veteran of political wars
in Ohio and New York. He is
one of three advisers with dai-
ly access to the president.
Since last January's inau-
guration, Mr. Stephanapolous
has been tapping his network
of Jewish friends and associ-
ates, adding to his knowledge
of what works with the Jewish
community — and what is
guaranteed to backfire. That
information has been conveyed
directly to the president, who
has incorporated it into his
dealings with Jewish leaders
in recent months.
"He has an instinctive un-
derstanding of our issues," said
a Jewish activist on Capitol Hill
and a friend of Mr. Steph-
anapolous. "More importantly,
his access to the president is
unequalled. That has been a
very important element in the
new, more positive relationship
we've seen."
