On Tuesday, August 2nd, Jewish activists and community leaders met at the home of Sorelle and Shimmy Idels in Kew Gardens Hills to speak with Congressman Lee Zeldin who is running for Governor of New York.
Represented were activists from Queens, Flatbush, Far Rockaway, Five Towns, and Crown Heights.
Joining from Crown Heights were local businessmen and Crown Heights activists Max Coen, Yitzchok Rimler, and Chaplain Raphael Mihalovich.
During the meeting, Zeldin reiterated the need for change in New York, citing the rise in anti-semitic attacks as well as the recent challenges facing yeshivas.
Zeldin also outlined his strategy and goals when he would be elected, and called upon the Jewish community to help vote out Katy Hochul in the general election.
The Crown Heights Republican Committee stated: “Lee Zeldin is one of only two Jewish Republicans in the House of Representatives, and has proved to us that he has our best interests in mind. He is truly the only person who will do what he says he will, and we need a strong advocate now more than ever.
“We strongly request from all residents of Crown Heights to go to a voting site, and vote for Lee Zeldin for NY Governor.“
