WASHINGTON (VINnews) — On Wednesday, Agudas Yisrael delegates were greeted by Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas.

At the gathering, Abba Cohen, Agudah’s Washington Director and VP for Gov Affairs, praised Mayorkas for his concern and connection with the Jewish community.

Cohen said,” A few minutes after Shabbos when the synagogue in Colleyville [Texas] was taken over [by a terrorist], I and other Jewish leaders received personal phone calls from Secretary Mayorkas and other officials in the White House expressing their concern, condolence and solidarity.”

He added, “In my 34 years in Washington, I have never experienced that level of sincerity, concern, and care about the Jewish community on a personal level.”

That was followed by a large round of applause from the crowd.
