Yesterday morning I was privileged to introduce Miriam Ostreicher to Senator Charles Schumer, one of the most powerful members of the U.S. Senate. The three of us were joined
by Yidel Perlstein, Chairman of
Brooklyn Community Board 12, and we spent the morning discussing the plight of Jacob
Ostreicher, our Brooklyn resident who has now been incarcerated in Bolivia
for more than a year without being charged with a crime.
Yidel Perlstein, Senator Schumer, Miriam Ostreicher and Dov Hikind
Senator Schumer is determined to do everything in his
power to bring Jacob home and we discussed a number of approaches to secure his release. Jacob's condition continues to deteriorate, but we will not
rest until he is returned to his family.
