The June 12 event featuring former White House Pres Secretary Ari Fleischer and radio talk show host Steve Malzberg (WOR, 710 AM) is part of a broader effort on the part of the Republican Jewish Coalition to ramp up outreach in New Jersey approaching 2012, according to Greg Menken, New York executive director and spokesman for the RJC.
The RJC is planning to launch a northern New Jersey chapter “in coming months,” Menken told The Jewish Standard.
“We will be hosting events designed to highlight the differences between Republicans and Democrats on Israel, the economy, and more,” he said.
The RJC is encouraged by growing numbers of Jewish voters pulling the lever for Republicans, Menken said, pointing to Jewish voter turnout for Governor Chris Christie, who attracted 38 percent of the Jewish vote in 2009.
The RJC has maintained a Central New Jersey chapter for more than a year, as well as a Pennsylvania/Southern New Jersey office.
