Local askanim heading to Philly to the Democratic National Convention
An Agudah delegation is heading to Philadelphia to partake in the Democratic National convention. Lakewood askanim are joining as well. Its not just the short drive and close proximity, Agudah officials also attended the RNC last week in Cleveland. In a statement Agudah officials said "While Agudath Israel of America does not endorse candidates, the goal of attending the conventions as official guests is to develop relationships with leaders of both parties and to engage in substantive discussions about issues important to our community."
