Vice President Mike Pence was roundly criticized on Monday for appearing at a campaign rally in Michigan at which a Messianic rabbi invoked Jesus in mourning the deaths of 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Pence, who has often proclaimed himself to be a born-again evangelical Christian, invited Rabbi Loren Jacobs to the stage at a rally in Waterford Township, a suburb of Detroit, for Lena Epstein, a Republican candidate for the open congressional seat in Michigan’s 11th District.

Jacobs, the founder and senior rabbi of Congregation Shema Yisrael in nearby Bloomfield Hills, opened by invoking “God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, God and father of my lord and savior Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah, and my God and father, too.”

(“Yeshua” — derived from a Greek spelling that eventually became “Jesus” in English — is the name by which many Messianic Jews refer to Jesus. You can watch C-SPAN’s video of Jacobs’ prayer here.)
