Hosting an event is not the same as endorsing it

By Susan Steinberg

(Response to the Aug. 26 story “Pakistani Christians endorse Trump at Jewish Center” in the TimesLedger)

As a co-president of the Bellerose Jewish Center I want to make it clear that we have a great relationship with a diverse number of community groups to whom we rent space to run events on all sides of the political spectrum. The congregants of the Bellerose Jewish Center do not endorse the views, opinions or beliefs of any one group nor do we endorse any candidate.

I would appreciate if you could print this as well. We are very happy to work with our community but want to make it clear we have no political ties. Our individual congregants are very diverse in their political views, and we have many lively discussions about our differences, but the Bellerose Jewish Center as a religious institution does not endorse any one party or candidate.
