More than 350 elected officials, dignitaries and community leaders participated Sunday at the Met Council’s annual legislative breakfast. Proudly billing itself as “America’s largest tzedakah,” Met Council distributed over 20 million pounds of food to more than 325,000 New Yorkers in 2022.

The annual event — held at the Yale Club just prior to the start of the Salute to Israel Parade — draws one of the largest assemblages of high-ranking New York politicians of any Jewish organization.

This year’s attendees included New York Gov. Kathy Hochul; U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer; Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries; Rep. Jerrold Nadler; Attorney General Letitia James; State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli; Mayor Eric Adams;  The borough presidents of Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, respectively, Mark Levine, Vanessa Gibson, Antonio Reynoso, Donovan Richards; New York City Deputy Police Commissioner Edward Caban; New York City Housing Preservation & Development Commissioner Adolfo Carrión Jr.; and, respectively, the district attorneys of the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, Darcel Clark, Eric Gonzalez, Melinda Katz; and many state legislators and city councilmembers.
