Indiana Congressman Luke Messer will be addressing the 94th Anniversary Dinner of Agudath Israel of America to be held on Sunday, June 5th at the Hilton New York.
Congressman Messer was elected in 2012 and quickly established himself as an emerging leader. In just his second term, he was elected by his peers to serve as the House Republican Policy Chair – the Conference’s 5th ranking leadership position. He serves on the House Financial Services and House Education & Workforce committees.
Congressman Messer formed – and chairs – the Congressional School Choice Caucus which is dedicated to expanding quality educational opportunities for every child. School choice programs, such as vouchers and scholarship tax credits, are critically important to the Orthodox Jewish community and Congressman Messer has proven himself to be a leader in this area.
“Imagine if every low and middle income student was eligible for a tuition scholarship to attend the school of his or her choice? In Indiana, that dream is a reality, thanks in large part to Congressman Luke Messer,” said Rabbi A. D. Motzen, Agudath Israel’s National Director of State Relations. “Agudath Israel is proud to have worked closely with Congressman Messer in the Indiana statehouse to help create the largest and broadest school voucher program in the country. Some people talk about school vouchers, Congressman Messer actually delivered.”
With just a few days left until the event, dinner chairman Shrage Goldschmidt, member of the Board of Trustees of Agudath Israel, urged all who are able to attend. “The dinner is a golden opportunity for the message of Torah Jewry to be heard by those in the positions of power on the federal, state and local level. The more people who are in attendance, the more powerfully that voice is heard. We urge every person who cares about Klal Yisroel to attend the dinner and strengthen the great koach harabim of Agudas Yisroel.”
