Ronald Reagan served as the president of the president of the United States from 1981 - 1989. Reagan's presidential campaign used promotional tools like his name in Hebrew and English to recapture the Jewish vote. Many people in the Jewish community were not satisfied with the Carter presidency, which includes its mediocre support for Israel. In 1980 Reagan received 36 percent of the Jewish vote and the Republican party wanted to continue that support and to bring more Jewish support for his 1984 re-election by using other methods like cold calling to do so.
