Storobin to Felder: Let’s Put Politics Aside for Metzitzah B’Peh

This morning, State Sen. David Storobin (R-Brooklyn) reached out to his Democratic challenger, Simcha Felder, with a simple request: let’s put politics aside, and work together to preserve the Jewish law of metzitzah b’peh.

“There is a time for politics and a time to fight for the community,” said Storobin. “Early in our race, I approached Simcha at an event and asked him to have a civilized, classy race that focuses on issues and community needs, instead of turning politics into a blood sport. I hope Simcha agrees with me that it’s important to defend Jewish law. If so, we should stand together to show that this isn’t a Republican or a Democrat issue, and that even candidates campaigning against each other can put politics aside for our community’s law and tradition.”

The Senator expressed this sentiment through a telephone message left for his challenger this morning. Storobin is eagerly awaiting Felder’s positive response.

State Senator David Storobin (R-Brooklyn) represents the 27th Senate District, which includes the neighborhoods of Bergen Beach, Brighton Beach, Gerritsen Beach, Gravesend, Homecrest, Marine Park, Mill Basin, Midwood and Sheepshead Bay. He is running for re-election in the 17th District, which includes the neighborhoods of Boro Park, Flatbush, Bensonhurst, Kensington, Midwood, Madison, and Knottingham.
