Assemblyman Gary Schaer (D – Passaic) was Wednesday evening’s guest speaker at Agudath Israel’s government affairs staff retreat this week. The event took place in Elizabeth, New Jersey and brought together Agudath Israel’s regional directors, administration, and other key staff members for two days of professional development and internal discussions.
Assemblyman Schaer delivered the keynote address at dinner and then participated in a reception hosted by Agudath Israel’s Lefkowitz Leadership Initiative. The late night reception brought together young community activists from across New York and New Jersey. It was an opportunity for them to meet Agudath Israel’s leadership and come home inspired by what each of them can accomplish when they get involved in their own locales.
