chaim-deutsch1Brooklyn, NY – In an often testy race for a seat on the New York City Council for the 48th District, Democrat Chaim Deutsch has won, beating Republican David Storobin and Working Families Igor Oberman.

Deutsch, a Brooklyn resident who has devoted more than half his life to public service,will succeed Mike Nelson.

Deutsch, who was endorsed by many rabbonim in and around the Flatbush community, founded the Flatbush Shomrim Safety Patrol over 22 years ago. Launched by Deutsch in 1991 in response to rising crime rates, today the 50-man neighborhood watch group works hand in hand with the NYPD and has played an important role in maintaining safety for area residents.

With a long list of accomplishments, the 44-year-old father of five is heavily invested in his community, having served on the boards of many local organizations, including COJO of Flatbush, Home Sweet Home and Our Place.

The son of Holocaust survivors, Deutsch was raised in a culture of volunteerism and has a soft spot in his heart for senior citizens and their particular needs. As a father of children in local yeshivos, Deutsch understands well the massive financial burdens placed on parents who struggle to pay their often overwhelming tuition bills and he plans to use his position in the City Council to help find some means of relief for private school parents.

Deutsch also brings with him seventeen years of experience on the City Council, where he has served as an aide and has dealt with a full array of social services issues.

The 48th District includes Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Homecrest and Midwood.

    Pack Your Bags

    My dear American Jews, pack your bags and get out of there. Don’t be stupid. Don’t close your eyes. Don’t pretend you don’t know. Get out of there while you can! The only place in the world to go is to Eretz Yisroel, because every other place is ruled by these maniacs, and even the State of Israel is ruled by the same Reshaim but at least here in Eretz Yisroel, we have Kedushas Eretz Yisroel. We have a promise from Hakodosh Boruch Hu that the land of Israel will not be destroyed, and that it is the safest place for a true Jew to be now.

    I am begging you. Please, I am so worried. I am so worried about my fellow Jews, really worried. Please come back to Hashem. Throw away your toys and come back to Hashem before it’s too late.
