Dueling sukkah events

Now that the debates are over, the sukkah portion of the presidential campaign begins in just a few hours. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will both be visiting sukkot this evening on behalf of their party’s presidential candidates.

First, at 6:15 p.m., Nadler will speak about the Obama-Biden ticket to invited guests from the Satmar community in Williamsburg, N.Y. at an event hosted by Rabbi Joseh Menczer.

Thirty minutes later, Graham, a top surrogate of John McCain, will be dropping by the sukkah of the leader of the largest pro-Israel PAC in the country. NORPAC president Ben Chouake, along with his wife Esther, will be hosting Graham at their Englewood, N.J., sukkah.
