“Though Spitzer admits he’s not as observant as some, he doesn’t skirt the issue of his Jewish heritage, rather embracing it as an integral element of both his public and private persona. At the Crown Heights campaign stop, for example, he was wearing a maroon suede yarmulkah.”

I'd rather have Zack in politics than this guy

Zack is a happy – presentable chosid of the Rebbe. He will get the job done, whatever it is, and why??? Because he davens at Aliyah.

always opportunities

We shouldn’t comment on only the bad things. Its great that he met some leaders in CH. If he gets some support it might help out some yidden in future.

poor ch

As one who reads col and does not live in ny, I can’t help but pity you. Zaki is deff not acting in his chjcc capacity. Where is Bronstein and hackner ? Who voted in chananya, Cohen and behrman?

If these ppl went representing the klal, then let the klal have a voice . If they went for a photo opp and to be machers, mensch on ch

#19 - How right you are!

A shande to have this low life in CH! Shame on our ‘leaders’ for endorsing this person for anything but a dog catcher!

He is a menuval par excellance! He will make your life worse then ever before. He is determined to turn the office if he wins into his new bully pulpit to shake down companies. He wreaked havoc on business in the past and will do it again. Why would want a lawyer for an accounting position? He is not qualified at all. Would you choose an accountant to be judge on a court? You can’t find one qualified accountant in NYC to be Comptroller? That says a lot. I wonder if CH would vote for Zimri ben Salua for the… Read more »

Put on Tefillin?

As an ordinary person living in CH....................

I have to ask the following. With all the photo ops and waist of time and energy that the CHJCC gets involved in, what has the CHJCC done to improve the housing problem in Crown Heights?
Why hasen’t the CHJCC done more to get decent housing at affordable prices for the newly weds and not just newly weds that cannot find a place to live?

That is what you took from this, his tie? smh

Equal time for this very important position
August 9, 2013 6:53 pm

I believe his opponent is a straight shooter who has been in government for years and more than qualified for the job of running the financial affairs of the City of New York. This is a very important position and first and foremost requires integrity and trust. Lets give equal time so the people can judge fairly for themselves

further # 10
and as I wrote In my opinion his tie reflected his opinion of the community- which is not much. You unfortunately took it on a very shallow basis. I wonder why

August 9, 2013 6:26 pm

BS”D #10 are you the for real one, chill out first of all, true the others have a strange taste in ties but they are not at the luncheon to impress anyone.I would think that anyone who need to tell another to do t’shuva has what to do himself . As the Baal Shem Tov stated “an admonition by a Rabbi who lacks self-inclusion and empathy is futile”and ” you should rebuke yourself when you rebuke your fellow man’. That’s all you have time for is to comment on my comment re a tie. You probably waste a lot more… Read more »

The whining and complaining in these comments is too much.

Are you serious?
August 9, 2013 6:06 pm

This is disgraceful….

TO #6
August 9, 2013 5:58 pm

Are you for real ??? So many important issues for the world right now & all you can do is check out this man’s tie ??? It’s Elul – doven for him ( and maybe you too ) to do t’shuva.
PS: He’s far from the only one at this meeting to be wearing an “interesting” tie!

We the people
August 9, 2013 5:46 pm

Why isn’t the CH community invited to meet politicle candidates?

to 4-- "only jewish"
August 9, 2013 5:46 pm

born jewish= jewish
born jewish raised as a goy= jewish

not sure where ur coming from….

Goy or Yid, who cares?
August 9, 2013 5:35 pm

He’s a hypocritical pervert. Let’s endorse Weiner as well, a duo of perverts. Just what the city needs & it makes CH look so good….we are supposed to be moral & endorse family values. Feh!

August 9, 2013 5:29 pm

BS”D hard to believe a multi millionaire running for such a high office would wear a tie like that. Seems to be is a sign he does not take us serious

August 9, 2013 5:25 pm

That would have made the lunch worth it!

August 9, 2013 5:22 pm

He’s only Jewish in the same sense as Lhota: born Jewish but raised as a complete goy.

To #1
August 9, 2013 3:17 pm

Yarmullka’s are only for goyim. (beats me)

Every goy that comes in, from every color and race gets a kippa, but the Yid not?!

very intense!
August 9, 2013 2:20 pm

on the menus!
I aint voting for him!

Missed the point..
August 9, 2013 2:17 pm

Why not give him a yalmukah???

Who paid the bill for lunch?
