"In times. of disaster, it's normal for
people to turn to God, but it should
be personal," she said. "Students can
be asked to observe a moment of
silence instead of reciting prayers in a
school setting."
She also takes a strong pro-life
stance. "I believe in right-to-life,"
Taub said. "I don't believe in abor-
tion, although I know it's legal in this
country. And I'm sorry that it has
become such a major issue in this

Council of Jewish Women and a

When asked if her Jewish identity
has influenced her political career,
Taub replied, "The issues I'm involved
with are not specifically Jewish, but I
subscribe to the Jewish philosophy of
taking care of our own; that's why the
welfare of children and seniors are
such priorities. I was taught that we're
put here on earth to help others."
."My goal has always been to leave a
place_ better than it was before," said
Taub, "and I know I've done that for

married her husband, Mickey, feels
her political beliefs reflect an overall
Jewish perspective. She says this is
shown by her concerns for social
issues and her desire to work for
increased funding for human services,
such as prescription coverage for sen-
iors, improvement of the mental

welfare recipients.
"Because of Sept. 11 and the unrest
in the Middle East, a conservative
agenda is filtering down from
Washington to the state level,"
Weisberg said. "We're becoming more
militant, less willing to work together
to build coalitions and find solutions.
That's one of my core reasons for run-

side or the other is not going to take
over, and that we have to find a mid-
dle ground."
"This is traditionally a moderate
district, and I want to continue that
tradition," she said. "I believe this dis-
trict tends to look at whether a candi-
date is moderate or conservative, as
opposed to whether he or she is a
Republican or a Democrat." ❑
