Alexandra Levine

After graduating college, Alexandra did a study aboard in Jerusalem, Israel where she worked with the IDF and the National guard.

After living in Israel, Alexandra came back to the USA; where she attended NYU Steinhardt School of Music, Education, and Development and received and received her Master’s Degree.

Politics was always apart of Alexandra’s life but she didn’t get fully involved until the 2016 election. Alexandra started the Jews 4 Trump movement in Sarasota County and became the state leader for FL, MD and DC for the America 1st Coalition which have both become national successes.

Currently, Alexandra is the treasurer on the board of Jexit, Inc. As a young Jewish conservative woman, Alexandra knew that #JEXIT was her calling. As Alexandra was living in Maryland and New York, she saw socialism start to take over around her and wanted to find a way to take that message to young millenials. Since joining #JEXIT, Alexandra feels that she has a voice again and isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Alexandra’s mission is to bring awareness to young millenials that the Democratic Party does not represent them anymore.

Cantor Sagee

I was a registered democrat since graduating high school in 1990. No chance I could support a republican. My parents are both Israeli born and have been registered Democrats since moving to the United States in 1965. My father’s family emigrated from Poland before the war and with the exception of of my mother’s parents, a distant aunt, and cousin who survived, the entire family was massacred in Lithuania. Buried in mass graves. All four of my wife’s grandparents were holocaust survivors.

I have served as a Cantor in various south Florida synagogues for over 20 years. I have also performed with both the Florida Grand Opera and Palm Beach Opera. Looking back, being among these groups was the first real eye-opening experience I had with regard to liberals.  Today, my concern for continued, staunch support for Democrats among American Jews, especially over the past several months, is at an all-time high. Now more than ever it’s imperative Jews become united and walk away from the Democrat party, which has become a safe space for anti-semitism.

My departure from the Democrats, began during Obama’s first term and developed steadily throughout his presidency. At the time, I was also teaching high school for the Broward county school system, down the street from Marjory Stoneman Douglas, in Parkland.

I witnessed the corruption and liberal brainwashing of students and teachers first hand. Any opposition to their belief system was met with a nasty, condescending, threatening verbiage meant to get you back in line with them. Classes were oversized, and the combination of entitlement mentality and soft discipline policy was a major issue. It took some time, but I eventually realized the failing school system is a haven for Democrats. It became a very uncomfortable situation which I also walked away from in 2012. From day one after we elected him, I sensed that Obama was promoting a rise in Muslim anti-semitism and hatred for Israel worldwide. It was also obvious to me he was looking to start a race war. During the 8 years of his presidency, any criticism of Obama had me labeled as everything from being racist to a Nazi sympathizer. And this was coming from other Jews! Even friends. The fundamental changes taking place in America were in fact the ones Obama promised but they weren’t the ones I’d hoped for. By the time Hillary was on the ballot it was clear that Trump was the only choice for America. I never thought it would happen but I officially JEXITed and registered republican this past summer.

Jody Steinlauf

I am a Patriot who truly believes that the Democratic Party has become too far to the left, and our fellow Jewish liberal’s have yet to realize this! 

I graduated FIU with a bachelors degree in business management. From there I worked in banking for 5 years before becoming a full-time mother. After many years of a “stay at home” mom, I decided to get my real estate license and work in the real estate industry. That was 25 years ago! 

My career has been very successful and a bit challenging! I’ve won many award throughout my career, one as “rookie of the year” in my first year! I love what I do, and will continue to service my clients for many more years. 

However, I find that there is another “calling” in my life! I was never involved in politics until Obama was elected president! Since then I realized our country was taking a turn for the worse, and many of my Jewish liberal friends didn’t see it and still haven’t! I tried throughout the years since his presidency to educate and factually share information to my friends that keep blindly voting for their party. I HAVE converted many but my job is not done! Therefore, I will continue to reach out to those who still “don’t get it”.

I am passionate when it comes to saving this country of which I love so dearly!
