A number of officials representing the United States government at key levels of influence addressed several hundred communal leaders at the Second Annual Legislative Breakfast of Agudath Israel of America on monday, at the Down Town Association in Lower Manhattan. Speaking to the event's theme of "Safety and Security in Our Communities," the officials outlined a variety of areas in which government agencies are acting vigorously to ensure the physical well-being of the greater Jewish community both domestically and overseas.
Newly elected Congressman Robert (Bob) Turner spoke about his appointments to the crucial Foreign Affairs and Homeland Security Committees, and criticized both the United Nations and Iran for their anti-Israel stances. "We have to work hard to get regime change in Iran," Turner declared.
In his remarks, Turner said he was "the new guy," and that he "won't forget how he got here."
