Ignorance and Obliviousness

Posted on 01 September 2013 by Community Voice NY

The Political Pull of New York’s Ultra-Orthodox New York City’s mayoral election is approaching, and as the race heats up, more attention is being paid to the increasing political influence of the ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish sects of Brooklyn.

Posted on 01 August 2013 by Community Voice NY

In his last week’s radio program David Greenfield hosted the debate between Kagan and Scavo, candidate for the 48th NYC Council District.
