Candidates Forum Informs Jewish Community (10-28-14)
About the Event
Hundreds of prospective voters headed to Temple Beth El of Boca Raton on October 28, 2014 for the biennial Meet the Candidates Forum, hosted by the Temple in partnership with our Jewish Community Relations Council. After welcomes from Rabbis Dan Levin and Jessica Spitalnic Brockman, the candidates’ positions on issues of concern to them and to the Jewish community. Federation President & CEO Matthew C. Levin moderated the program.
Candidates seeking office in the US Congress, as Florida CFO, in the Florida Legislature, and on the Palm Beach County Commission thoughtfully responded to strategic questions on topics including support for Israel and fighting terror, the economy and government spending, anti-Semitism, immigration, healthcare and education, workplace discrimination and traffic safety.
