Mayoral Race Letter of Endorsement*
The moral climate of the city we live in, affects the Jewish community as seen many times in the Torah. Mayoral candidate Erick Salgado is the only known candidate in the current New York City mayoral race, committed to safeguarding our moral values. He is opposed to the forced acceptance of Toeiva, which we know normalizes lifestyles that are forbidden (Assur). Erick Salgado’s campaign needs our votes, our volunteered time and our contribution of funds. Our response needs to be analogous to our response to a charity organization. It is, therefore, halachically (according to Jewish law) incumbent upon every Jew to assist Mr. Salgado’s campaign in its needs, in order for Erick Salgado to win the mayoral race. Every Jew who is not yet registered to vote must register by Aug. 16 in order to be eligible to vote in the Democratic Primary. Every Jew, registered as a Democrat at the time of the Primary, is obligated to vote for Mr. Salgado. Through these actions, may we merit the ultimate redemption.
