Senator Al Franken Fundraiser In Teaneck, New Jersey
Sunday, January 5th at 11:00 am in Teaneck, NJ, Mort & Esther Fridman will host a fundraiser for Senator Al Franken (D-MN). Senator Franken recognizes the shared strategic interests between the U.S. and Israel, and has consistently supported our annual security assistance package there. Last year he made a trip to Israel through the American Israel Education Foundation which greatly deepened his appreciation of the U.S.-Israel relationship.
He also believes that the greatest threat that Israel faces, and the greatest threat in the region to American interests, is Iran and its nuclear program. Senator Franken has stated that “for Israel and the U.S., a nuclear-armed Iran would be totally unacceptable, and that’s why we have made clear that our policy is prevention rather than containment of a nuclear-armed Iran.”
Senator Franken sits on the following committees:
- Committee on Indian Affairs
- Committee on Energy and Natural Resources
- Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions
- Committee on the Judiciary
Please join us to discuss concerns to the U.S.-Israel relationship with Senator Franken.
