Chaim Deutsch hit the stretch run of his campaign for city council picking up significant endorsements from Jewish community leaders.
The endorsements from the Sephardic National Alliance and Sephardic Voters League helped establish Deutsch as the front-runner in the race within a race for the support of the Sephardic community.
“By leaps and bounds, Chaim Deutsch is the best and most qualified candidate in the race for the 48th city council seat,” said Jack Avital of the Sephardic National Alliance. “His contributions to the neighborhoods of southern Brooklyn have been truly immense and I have no doubt he will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of seniors, children and the disabled as a member of the New York City Council.”
“Chaim Deutsch is a real mensch and exactly the type of public servant we need more of in today’s political climate,” said Maurice Hedaya of the Sephardic Voters League. “Chaim has our unequivocal endorsement and we stand strongly behind him in support of his candidacy as he enters the homestretch of his campaign.”
“I am honored to have the endorsements of the Sephardic National Alliance and the Sephardic Voters League,” Deutsch said. “I look forward to being a strong voice for the Sephardic community and all of the residents of Midwood, Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach and Sheepshead Bay as a member of the city council.”
A few days later, Deutsch was also endorsed by Larry Spiewak, chairman of the board of COJO of Flatbush.
