Former Mayor Ed Koch Has Some Advice for Forward Readers

Edward I. Koch, the 105th mayor of New York — and the city’s second Jewish mayor — will be the Forward’s next guest Bintel Brief advice columnist.

Koch, 84, is an author of more than a dozen books, including, most recently, “The Koch Papers: My Fight Against Anti-Semitism” (Palgrave, 2008), written with Rafael Medoff. A longtime advocate of Catholic-Jewish dialogue and relations, Koch also co-wrote “His Eminence and Hizzoner” (William Morrow, 1989) with the late John Cardinal O’Connor. The former mayor is a partner at the Manhattan law firm Bryan Cave.


New installments of the Bintel Brief, featuring Koch responding to readers’ questions, will be posted Mondays at www.forward.com, beginning Monday, April 13. If you have a question for the Bintel Brief, e-mail bintelbrief@forward.com. Questions selected for publication are printed anonymously.
