Candidates for Congress, state offices to speak at upcoming forum
Nearly two dozen synagogues have joined to present a candidate forum on Monday featuring candidates from a variety of offices.
Twenty-three synagogues with several Jewish communal groups and day schools are hosting the event from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, at Congregation B'nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim, 1201 E. Lake-Cook Road in Deerfield. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.
The forum is a much larger effort from the one hosted two years ago by Congregation B'nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim and two other synagogues. Monday's session is thought to be the largest Jewish-sponsored political candidate forum in the area, said Scott Schreiber, chairman of the event.
All major party candidates were invited to participate in the forum, which includes the 9th and 10th Congressional districts; the 9th, 29th, and 30th state Senate districts; and the 16th, 17th, 18th, 57th, 58th and 59th state House districts.
Topics include issues facing the country, neighborhoods and the Jewish community.
Before the event, high school students are invited to attend a discussion about the political process, the upcoming election and how to become involved. That session will be from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Chicagoland Jewish High School, 1095 Lake-Cook Road in Deerfield, and will be led by David Prystowsky, assistant vice president of the Jewish United Fund.
Free pizza will be provided. Students who want to attend the main forum should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
