Jewish and Muslim community and faith leaders met this afternoon in Southern Brooklyn to emphasize their commitment to continue to work together in the future. Organized by Councilman Chaim Deutsch, the meeting was an important step forward for the two communities.
Deutsch said, “Councilman Yeger has been involved in local politics since the 1990s, working to unite people from every ethnic background. His record of service speaks for itself. Today’s meeting was a valuable opportunity for our two communities to unite to focus on the future, and what we can do together to benefit the many diverse New Yorkers we represent.
International foreign policy differences do not need to have any impact on how we operate day to day as neighbors in Southern Brooklyn. The dialogue we had today was productive, respectful, and encouraging.”
