When Boro Park’s Friedlander Group calls for a meet, greet and eat, the city’s top elected officials come .  In past events, Mayor de Blasio would often come to greet his orthodox Jewish friends and get their blessing as did all the mayoral, congressional, citywide and state and city council candidates.

Established in 2001, Ezra Friedlander and his boutique political firm team has provided government officials and non-profit organizations as well as corporate and foreign entities with council and moving their organizations forward in ways they never thought possible.

Such was the case last week, City Public Advocate Letitia James, who shows up at many of the Friedlander events led a bevy of elected officials to enjoy a night in the Sukkah at 1449 50th Street in the heart of Boro Park.
