WASHINGTON - At least seven of the Obama campaign's 35 co-chairs are Jewish, including Alan Solow, a leading figure in the organized community.

Solow is identified on the list released early Wednesday morning as both a partner at the DLA Piper law firm and as a past president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

"My appointment is a reflection of the importance he places on reaching out to Americans of all types," Solow told JTA from Israel, where he is on a Presidents Conference tour. "The Jewish constituency is an important part of the American community. It is important in electoral politics and has been a mainstay of the Democratic Party."
