Senator Schumer Meets With Miriam Ostreicher

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.

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.
