Eichenstein Endorses Dan Goldman for Congress

By Matis Glenn

BORO PARK — Congressional candidate Dan Goldman received the endorsement of Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, nabbing the support of a prominent Orthodox elected official in Boro Park a day after getting the endorsement of the neighborhood’s largest Chassidic group.

“Over the last few months, I have gotten to know Dan Goldman quite well,” Eichenstein told Hamodia. “Dan is a rising star with the experience to immediately navigate our halls of Congress. Dan keenly understands the needs of our community and most importantly respects the beautiful diversity and mosaic that is New York City, which includes the Orthodox Jewish community.”

On Sunday, Bobov community leadership announced that they were endorsing Goldman, marking the first endorsement from a major Orthodox group in the race for District 10. Goldman is one of a dozen Democrats vying for the open seat of the newly formed district, that includes Lower Manhattan, and parts of Brooklyn including Boro Park below 14th Avenue.

Goldman, 46, rose to fame as the lead prosecutor for House Democrats in the first impeachment trial of then-President Donald Trump, over allegations that Trump abused his power for personal gain in his dealings with Ukraine. Goldman previously served for 10 years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York.

Over the weekend, Goldman was endorsed by the New York Times.

Goldman also received the endorsements Monday of former Assemblyman James Brennan, former City Councilwoman Kathryn Freed and Democratic District Leaders Jennifer Hoppe and Chris McCreight. 

The primary will be held on August 23. Early voting has already started, and will continue until August 21.
