Jewish Political Updates hosted on Wednesday its second community forum, in a series of bimonthly meetings on Jewish-related issues. The discussion forum took place at the Loft in the Borough park section of Brooklyn, with the participation of Jewish community leaders, insiders and members of the Jewish community throughout New York City.
Featured speakers included Michael Mukasey, former Attorney General of the United States, and his son Marc Mukasey, a criminal defense lawyer and the partner of former mayor Rudy Giuliani, who discussed counterterrorism, national security issues, and implications for U.S Jewry. The forum was moderated by community activist Chaskel Bennett, and organized by Ezra Friedlander, CEO of The Friedlander Group.
