Will the last Jew left in New York’s congressional delegation be reelected? Will New York’s senior congresswoman receive another term? Or will one of the newcomers upend Manhattan politics?
After years as colleagues in Washington, Jerry Nadler, representing the West Side of Manhattan, and Carolyn Maloney, representing the East Side, are facing off in a rare incumbent-vs-incumbent primary on August 23 sparked by redistricting. Also vying to represent the newly-drawn 12th district are attorney Suraj Patel, who came within 3 points of beating Maloney in 2020, and first-time candidate Ashmi Sheth.
Moderated by Matt Nosanchuk, president of New York Jewish Agenda, and Jodi Rudoren, editor-in-chief of the Forward.
In partnership with the Forward, the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center, the JCRC-NY, and the Lincoln Square Synagogue, we will also be hosting an in-person and virtual candidate forum on Weds. Aug. 10 at 7pm ET,
