The state’s Jewish Family Service agencies will receive $400,000 in the new fiscal year to serve Holocaust survivors as part of a “Grants in Aid” allocation, the New Jersey Jewish News reported.

The allocation announced earlier this month brings the three-year total to $1 million in state funding for services to New Jersey’s 4,700 Holocaust survivors, according to the newspaper.

The additional funding will provide survivors with 11,000 hours of home care service, 3,000 meals, and 1,500 hours of case work and social service needs management, according to the New Jersey Jewish News.

“We are grateful to Gov. Chris Christie and the legislature for once more recognizing, in a bipartisan way, that the concerns of Holocaust survivors are unique because of what they have been through, and because their vulnerabilities at this age are increasing and are real,” Mark Levenson, president of the New Jersey State Association of Jewish Federations, said in a statement.

This is yet another example of politics in America being a farce. ANYONE running for office knows they must ‘pay tribute’ to the race of con-men or they’ll never BE ALLOWED to run for anything. A lousy 2% of the populace shouldn’t even be worthy of mention in any society, but here they control both the government and communication.

I must say that Chris Christie’s tubby physique and the skullcap on his head makes me think of John Tenniell’s illustration of Tweedledum and Tweedledee in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass.
