Congressman Lee Zeldin, a Republican who is running for governor of New York, visited the Rebbe’s Ohel in the days leading up to Yud Shevat.
Zeldin, who is running to be the Republican nominee for governor, was accompanied by shliach Rabbi Motti Grossbaum of Chabad of Stony Brook.
The Long Island Congressman is one of only two Jewish Republicans in the US House of Representatives. Zeldin is a very strong supporter and voice for Israel in Washington.
Before entering the Ohel, the candidate put on tefillin with his longtime friend Rabbi Grossbaum. Once inside he prayed for success in the upcoming race, and read a number of chapters of Tehillim.
After exiting, Zeldin spoke about the Rebbe’s legacy that continues to be felt in New York and beyond until today.
