Congressman-elect Tonko heard from these leaders their concerns regarding key issues, including Jewish day school funding; the security of Israel; energy conservation and production; civil rights and religious freedom; and in the wake of the Mumbai attacks, the need to protect vulnerable targets and communities from terrorism.
