On February 18, 2021, the New York Jewish Agenda (NYJA) hosted a mayoral candidates forum, featuring ten front-runners in the 2021 NYC mayors race.
In just over an hour, our panelists covered a ton of ground, offering their unique views on the diversity of New York Jewish voters, the role of Israel in local politics, and what it means for Jewish political figures to do their work explicitly as Jews. We’re so grateful to our panelists, State Senator Liz Krueger, Council Member Stephen Levin, Suri Kasirer, Stu Loeser, and Ruth Messinger, and to our incredible moderator, Sally Goldenberg for their thoughtful and energetic participation in this event.
NYJA is delighted to invite you to the next event in our “On the Agenda” discussion series, Jewish Political Power in New York. We are bringing together an incredible group of Jewish leaders to explore what it means to be politically engaged as Jews today, with an eye towards the 2021 municipal elections. The event will take place via Zoom webinar on Friday, December 18th from 12:30 – 1:45 PM.
