New Jersey US Senator Cory Booker will be addressing the 93rd Anniversary Dinner of Agudath Israel of America to be held on Sunday, May 10th, at the Hilton New York.
In his distinguished public career, first as Newark City Councilman, then as Mayor of Newark, and as United States Senator since 2013, Cory Booker has made a name for himself as an individual who is intensely devoted to public service and works tirelessly to enhance the lives of all segments of the community.
Senator Booker has been outspoken on behalf of school choice on the floor of the Senate, arguing forcefully that every child deserves a quality education. He has also been a staunch defender of the security of Israel. He sponsored a bill that granted Israel $225 million for the Iron Dome Rocket Defense Program during the Gaza War in August 2014.
Rabbi Avi Schnall, Agudath Israel’s New Jersey Director said, “We ‘Garden Staters’ are very proud to have the New Jersey Senator as the guest speaker for this year’s national Agudah dinner. He has been a true friend to our community and he is an absolutely dynamic speaker. We look forward to hosting him and having the opportunity to hear from him.”
With just a few days left until the event, dinner chairman Dr. Irving Lebovics, President of Agudath Israel of California, 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.”
