"[Bernie Sanders,] a 73-year-old Jew _from Brooklyn via Vermont_ ..."

Shouldn't that be

"... a 73-year-old Jew _from Vermont via Brooklyn_ ..."?

Or have I, once again, fallen behind the curve of language-change?

(Bernie Sanders is a Jew?! That's odd. He doesn't look Jewish. Those of a
certain age may recognize the reference.)
