Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) Sun 11/12 10:00 AM

Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) will be joining us for a NORPAC Teaneck event at the home of Phil & Rochelle Goldschmiedt on Sunday morning, November 12th.

Eliot Engel is the Ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He has been one of the leading advocates of the US-Israel relationship for almost three decades in Congress.

Engel often co-introduces pro-Israel legislation with Republican Members in order to keep these issues bipartisan. He co-authored the overwhelmingly-supported H.R.1698 – Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act – along with Committee Chairman Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), imposing non-nuclear sanctions on Tehran’s belligerent ballistic missile development program.

Last year, Reps. Royce and Engel, along with 367 other House Members, sent a bipartisan letter to Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, urging him to condemn violence against Israelis and end incitement to violence within the Palestinian Authority.

In 2015, Congressman Engel took a brave stance in opposing the Iran Deal (JCPOA) in the face of great pressure to vote otherwise. He deserves recognition for his vote against this very troubling agreement.

Please join us in support of Congressman Engel, and share your concerns about the US-Israel relationship with him at this event. If you are interested in supporting this event, please contact Avi Schranz at
