Matt Brooks to Ira Forman: Don’t Lie!

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks had sharp words for NJDC’s Ira Forman, in response to Forman’s call for a November 2 debate between the two men.

“He’s just being disingenuous, which is somewhat typical for the stuff he puts out,” Brooks told the Forward this afternoon.

Brooks pointed out that the RJC and NJDC have been hosting debates in a variety of locations. RJC’s Philadelphia director, Scott Feigelstein, is set to debate NJDC’s David Goldenberg next Monday in Philadelphia. Next Wednesday, RJC’s Greg Menken will be debating an NJDC representative in New York.

“The fact that [Forman] claims that we’re ducking him and don’t want to talk about the issues is ludicrous,” Brooks said.
