The Jewish Daily Forward will present its take on politics and the midterm elections in new blog MitzVote, with the title derived from the plural of mitzvah, which is Hebrew for commandment or good deed.

MitzVote will focus on individual races where Jewish candidates, voters, and issues will play a role, including this breakdown of the race between Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.
