CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin is visiting one of the oldest Jewish temples in Maryland during a campaign swing through the western part of the state.

Cardin’s schedule Friday includes a stop at the B’er Chayim temple in Cumberland. The synagogue was built in 1866. It was added in 1975 to the National Register of Historic Places.

Cardin’s trip begins with a round-table discussion with employers and job-seekers in Frederick. Then the first-term Democrat travels to Hagerstown for a senior citizen forum.

After the Cumberland stop, Cardin is bound for Firefly Farms in Accident. The farm produces goat cheese that has won national awards.

    This two faced Hebrew should actually try praying when he visits a synagogue instead of promoting himself.
