REMINDER: Our NY-12 candidates forum is just two days away and voting in the Aug. 23 primary.
The August 23 primary is just two weeks away! And this Wednesday, we’re bringing together the three leading candidates to represent the newly drawn 12th Congressional District. The New York Jewish Agenda is pleased to host this important event in partnership with the Forward, the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, the Lincoln Square Synagogue and the Marlene Meyerson JCC of Manhattan.
After years as colleagues in Washington, Congressman Jerry Nadler, representing a district that includes the West Side of Manhattan, and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, representing a district that includes 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 is attorney Suraj Patel, who ran for Congress in 2018 in 2020. Jodi Rudoren, the Forward’s Editor-in-Chief, will co-moderate the forum with Matt Nosanchuk, NYJA’s President.
We invite you to attend either in person or on Zoom, as this will be an important event where our community will have a front-row seat in one of the most closely-watched congressional races in the country. Click on the graphic below to register.
If you live in the district and are preparing to exercise your right to vote in the Democratic primary in NY-12 or are interested in one of the key congressional races in the country, join us to hear the candidates address the crucial issues facing our city, our country, and our community — from inflation and the war in Ukraine to combating antisemitism and other forms of bigotry and hate, gun control, abortion, climate change and the political polarization affecting our country.
