Also present are several elected officials, including New York State Senator John Sampson and New York City Councilman Dr. Mathieu Eugene. These men are more than colleagues to me. I have worked closely with them on important matters in my 20th Senatorial District and throughout Brooklyn, and our civic collaboration has been a tremendous success.
“I am also extremely gratified by the presence of so many outstanding members of the Boro Park community, including Joel Eisdorfer, my outstanding community liaison, Rabbi Aron Ginsburg of Gan Yisroel, Rabbi Shmuel Steinharter of Boro Park Bikur Cholim, Rabbi Hyman Schoenblum of Boro Park Bikur Cholim, Rabbi Bernard Freilech assistant to NY State Police Superintendant, Shimshi Heszkel and Shloime Reichberg of Mekimi, Chaskel Bennett of Agudas Yisroel of America, Yankel Bar-Horin of the Yaldeinu School, Meyer Weber of Metro Rescue Squad, Representatives of the Satmar, Belz, and Bobov Chasidim, representatives of Sparks.
“This evening has enabled me to welcome and meet with some notable individuals in the Hasidic community. I thank you all for your support. I am proud to receive it. I would also like to thank the brilliant singer, Lipa Schmeltzer for his wonderful songs and for his Passover Haggadahs.
“Perhaps most important to highlight is the indestructible bond of friendship we have all developed, based upon reciprocal trust and affection. It inspires the harmony of our partnership.”
Senator Adams concluded: “The City of New York, the greatest city in the world, includes and embraces people of every race and every faith. The individuals present tonight stand united in the conviction that every moral and ethical human being champions the brotherhood of the one true race, the human race.”
