Meir Panim implements programs that serve Israel’s neediest populations with respect and dignity. Meir Panim also coordinated care packages for families in the South during the Gaza War.
Chaim Israel, who wears a shtreimel on Shabbos, has served as the president of the Boro Park Y for many years and is president of Agudath Israel of Boro Park West (9th Avenue). He is frequently found on the roster of panelists at Agudath Israel annual conventions and is seen in almost every picture of Boro Park activists at significant community events. He also is a longtime member of Community Planning Board No. 12.
Universally respected, Chaim Israel plainly is an individual who should be given serious attention as a chassidishe candidate for public office. He will be strongly supported by all segments of our communities. Though this writer considers Chaim Israel a good friend, this writing and vote of confidence is totally unsolicited.
