    At a campaign rally Monday night, Kayla Moore spoke in support of her husband, Roy, who at the time was running for Alabama senator. Last night, the seat went to opponent Doug Jones, a Democrat, whom Donald Trump congratulated via Twitter for his hard-fought victory. (“It never ends!” Trump tweeted, telling the truth.)

    But before that all happened, Kayla Moore felt the need to declare how much she and Roy Moore like Jews. “One of our attorneys is a Jew. We have very close friends that are Jewish, and rabbis, and we also fellowship with them.”

    Something about that last sentence didn’t quite pass the smell test. Were the Moores really fellowshipping with rabbis? There was only one way to find out. I decided I would try to call every rabbi in Alabama. Here is what happened.
