The Flatbush Jewish Community Coalition (FJCC) recently hosted the Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer at the Trump Organization, and adviser to Donald Trump on Israel Policy, Jason Dov Greenblatt.
This was Mr. Greenblatt’s first visit to any Jewish community since Mr. Trump named Mr. Greenblatt as one of his top Israel advisers.
Mr. Greenblatt, accompanied by FJCC Chairman Josh Mehlman, started his visit to Flatbush by meeting with a group of Rabbonim including Rabbi Moshe Bergman, Rabbi Joey Haber, Rabbi Moshe Tuvia Lieff, Rabbi David Ozeri, Rabbi Meir Platnick, Rabbi Eliezer Rappaport, and Rabbi Moshe Weinberger, hosted by Rabbi Yisroel Reisman at his home.
He later met with community organizational leaders, including Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zweibel, Executive VP of Agudath Israel of America, Sol Werdiger, Chairman of the Agudah Board and a group of FJCC representatives including executive board members Josh Mehlman, Peter Rebenwurzel and Chaskel Bennett.
A wide range of important topics were discussed, with a significant focus on the US-Israel relationship.
As a father of six children, that are all in Yeshiva, Mr. Greenblatt is well aware of the challenges private school parents are facing. Having a personal and professional relationship with Donald Trump for over 20 years; sitting in the next office and traveling the world together as his business advisor, Mr. Greenblatt, a proud shomer shabbos Orthodox Jew, is in a unique position of influence with the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee.
Mr. Greenblatt, who articulated his Torah background as essential to his activities, expressed appreciation for the important dialogue. The Rabbonim and communal leaders praised Mr. Greenblatt for his ongoing efforts to raise awareness on issues of deep concern to the Orthodox Jewish Community. Future FJCC meetings and conversations are planned.
