Norm Coleman in NYC on Saturday

Sen. Norm Coleman will be speaking about the U.S.-Israel relationship at Manhattan’s West Side Institutional Synagogue this Saturday on Simchat Torah at 6:30 p.m. It’s somewhat unusual to have a speaker before marching with the Torah, but the synagogue seems to be trying to make a tradition of it … Mayor Bloomberg spoke last year during that slot.

Also, Jay Zeidman, the 24-year old White House liaison to the Jewish community, will be speaking at Yeshiva University on October 25 at 8 p.m. He’s being hosted by YUPAC … which sounds like it should raise eyebrows, until you find out it’s actually a student group – the Y.U. Public Action Committee.

“It was just the name that stuck,” said the group’s leader Avi Posnick, acknowledging that it might cause confusion.
