When The Jewish Community Got Engaged And Delivered The Votes

The following is my debut monthly Jewish political update in the JCC of Marine Park's - The Jewish Echo magazine:

Voters in New York City expressed their desire for change, after 20 years of Republican control, in an unequivocal voice - by granting Bill de Blasio a 49 point victory over his Republican opponent, on November 5th, 2013.

For the Jewish community in New York, the largest gathering of Jews outside Israel, this election cycle meant a revival of power of an electorate that was often ignored by City Hall.
