Although Jews are generally critical or suspicious of the Christian Right, the two groups do have points of nonconflicting intersection: (1) Jews play a significant role in Christian Right theology, (2) they have common political ground in support for Zionism/Israel, and (3) several individual Jews are leading or supporting figures within the Christian Right itself. Why these Jews are involved in this conservative religious movement is explored.
