Golan Cipel: N.J. Jews Betrayed Me

Golan Cipel, who continues to deny former N.J. Governor Jim McGreevey’s claims that they had an affair, told the New Jersey Jewish News that he felt abandoned by the Jewish community in the Garden State…

“I was part of the NJ Jewish community, and I helped a lot of people, and in my time of need, they turned their back on me,” Cipel said. “I love the Jews of New Jersey but their silence was very painful for me. I didn’t get one call from rabbis, friends, or people in the [Jewish] federations asking me for my side of the story or offering help. No one said, ‘Maybe Golan is right.’”
