Ed Koch Speaks about the Rebbe

Former New York Mayor Ed Koch was interviewed by JEM’s My Encounter with the Rebbe oral history project in his office in Manhattan in May 2012. He spoke about his several interactions with the Rebbe.

Despite the fact that the Rebbe did not agree with Koch on numerous issues, he nevertheless greeted him graciously, and looked for areas of cooperation.

Special thanks to Rabbi Avrohom Berkowitz for making the interview happen!
