Biden To Speak at Detroit Yeshiva Fundraiser

Don’t look for Vice President Joe Biden in Washington on Sunday. He’ll be in Detroit, possibly adding to his long and memorable list of gaffes as he speaks at the annual fundraising dinner for an area Orthodox day school.

Biden will also be stumping for Debbie Stabenow, the Democratic junior senator from Michigan, while in town. But it is expected that Jewish voters — Democratic but also possibly others — and supporters of Jewish education will likely turn up at the Detroit Marriott Hotel at the Renaissance Center for the Yeshiva Beth Yehudah dinner. There they will hear the vice president speak on U.S. foreign policy and support for Israel.

Yeshiva Beth Yehudah touts itself as “the largest Jewish schools system in Michigan, providing quality Torah-based and secular educational programs for close to 100 years.” It is located in the Detroit suburb of Southfield and has approximately 800 students in Kindergarten through 12th Grade.

It appears that Yeshiva Beth Yehudah has a history of successfully snagging top-tier presenters from both major political parties for their fundraisers. At the school’s dinner last year, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush spoke and Senator Stabenow presented Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm with an award.
