Congratulations Loretta and Yitz !

Yitz and Loretta: My congratulations as well. Like being on the Council or in the NJ State Senate, serving on the NJ-Israel Commission may require more effort than you expect but less than you are capable of. And don't forget that NJ and Israel are similar in size and population.

Senator, congratulations on this honor. Councilman, congratulations to you as well. I know that both of you will serve with great vision and dedication to your constituents. I am sure that both of you will continue for many years to continue to serve in such a way that has made you both such exemplary leaders.
