Sarah and Dr. Robert Goodman hosted a Norpac pro-Israel meeting with Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D-5th Dist.) at their Teaneck home. Mr. Gottheimer’s district includes parts of Bergen, Passaic, Sussex, and Warren counties, including the towns of Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, New Milford, Paramus, and Teaneck.
Mr. Gottheimer’s discussion focused largely on the need to keep U.S.-Israel relations a non-partisan issue. The pro-Israel community must maintain and increase its advocacy efforts to keep up with the growing anti-Israel rhetoric from other groups on Capitol Hill, he told the group.
Representative Gottheimer is finishing up his first term in Congress and will run for re-election in November.
