Governor Kathy Hochul personally contacted Kiryas Joel’s Satmar Rebbe, Rebbe Aron, on Thursday to express her gratitude for his assistance.
According to a post from Satmar Headquarters, the governor vowed to do everything in his power to support the neighborhood.
God knows we will always cooperate when you require it, she assured.
Due to Lee Zeldin’s steadfast support for yeshiva curricula, the vast majority of orthodox Jewish leaders, both Chassidic and Litvish, supported him; nonetheless, both Rebbe Aharon and the Skvere Rebbe supported Governor Hochul.
Ezra Friedlander, a civic activist, wrote on Twitter: “This shows the endorsement will help the whole community! Gov. Hochul contacted the Satmar Rebbe this evening to express his gratitude for his support. ”
