Bochur Honored With Paging at Republican Convention


yosef-abrahamsonYosef Abrahamson has been selected to receive the very competitive and prestigious honor to serve as a Page for the Republican National Convention, where Mitt Romney will be officially nominated to run for president. The convention will take place at the end of August in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Yosef was selected in 2008 for John McCain’s nomination, and his older sister Sarah was selected in 2004 for George W. Bush.

Yosef, who is a former 2-time winner of the N.Y. Commissioner for a day Essay Contest, graduated in 2011 with an Associate Degree in Business from Bramson Ort College, and received Smicha (Rabbinical Ordination) this past Spring from Rabbi Moshe Stern, of the Beis Din of Montreal. He is currently working with Nebraska Republican Congressman Lee Terry on his re-election Campaign.

The entire Abrahamson Family – who also earlier this year appeared with Oprah Winfrey on her Next Chapter show – will attend the Convention in Tampa, where Republican Central Committee Woman Dinah Abrahamson will introduce her granddaughter and newest member of the family, Ella, to the Grand Old Party. Ella will be the youngest credentialed Republican attending the Convention and will have a daily photo blog.

    What’s the matter, gb, never seen a yeshiva bochur in a blue shirt before?

    Well put, Aryeh. Kol hakavod!

  2. I think I’m also a little confused, and no its not about the blue shirt. It’s just about what I had expected “the buchor” to look like. And I think everyone else is in the same dilemma here as me.
