Former Councilman Simcha Felder is the new State Senator for the newly cobbled “super Jewish district,” having won 65 percent of the vote against the GOP incumbent Senator David Storobin.

Felder, an Orthodox Jew, has been endorsed by the Jewish Press, to represent a district that includes Borough Park, Midwood and Homecrest.
