Brooklyn Boro President Reynoso Meets FJCC Leaders

The Flatbush Jewish Community Coalition (FJCC) convened a leadership meeting with Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso to discuss issues and concerns of the Flatbush community.

The robust discussion included rising anti- semitism, small business, quality of life, crime, and sanitation concerns. Borough President Reynoso, who served as a city councilmember in Williamsburg prior to becoming borough president, expressed his commitment to continue working with the FJCC to address these concerns.

FJCC Chairman Josh Mehlman thanked the Boro President for his interest in better understanding the needs of our community and the Jewish community borough-wide.

The meeting was attended by representatives of Flatbush shuls, yeshivas and organizations, demonstrating the importance of community engagement and creating an open line of communication with our elected representatives to better serve the needs of their constituents.

  1. I don’t live in Brooklyn, never heard of him, is he any good?
    So far i just see someone who didn’t give everyone there the courtesy of wearing a business suit.
    Showed up dressed like he was going out clubbing.

  2. @ Long Island Yid – Excellent point! He is not dressed any worse than so many of our friends and neighbors dress when they come to daven. It is, I am afraid, a lost art today. Perhaps, if shuls will stop giving aliyos or permitting people from davenning “for the amud” who are not wearing hats, jackets (or at least a tallis), let alone to those without socks or to those whose shirt tails are untucked (or worse who are wearing polo shirts or even shorts), then perhaps the community at large will show us more kovod as well.

  3. It should not come as any surprise that the three talmidim of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin – Rabbi Berry, Rabbi Nierenburg, and Rabbi Schron are all wearing ties and jackets unlike several of “our own” who came dressed no worse that the Borough President (i.e. no tie and no jacket). That Yeshivah in particular, has always placed an emphasis on Kovod HaAdam and Kovod HaBriyos.
