Alfred Moses was a former

president of the American Jewish Committee.

YOUNGSTOWN — A senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and a former U.S. ambassador to Romania, who is supporting Barack Obama, will discuss issues of concern to the Jewish community at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Jewish Community Center, 505 Gypsy Lane.

Alfred H. Moses, who supports Obama, was appointed ambassador to Romania in 1994 by then-President Clinton. He served three years in that position and served as Clinton’s special presidential envoy to Cyprus.

During the 1970s, Moses represented the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations in negotiations with Romania to facilitate the emigration of Romanian Jews to Israel. He was also the president of the American Jewish Committee from 1991 to 1994, resigning to become ambassador.

He is now senior counsel in the Washington, D.C., office of the Covington & Burling international law firm.

Ann Lewis, a senior adviser for Clinton, also served as director of communications for Clinton’s political action committee and her campaign fund from 2005 to 2007.

From 1997 to 2000, she served as director of communications and then as counselor to President Clinton. She also was the director of communication and deputy campaign manager for the Clinton-Gore Re-election Campaign in 1995 and 1996.

Lewis also served as senior adviser to the U.S. Senate campaign of Hillary Clinton in 2000, and as national chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee Women’s Vote Center from 2003 to 2004.

Lewis served on the advisory committee for the book “Jews and American Politics,” and is a member of the board of the Jewish Women’s Archive.

The event is sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation.

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required by calling (330) 746-3250, ext. 108, or e-mailing nsentelik@jewishyoungstown.org. For more information, contact Bonnie Deutsch Burdman at (330) 770-8702.

Let's don't let Hillary pull an Austin in Cleveland tonight. The most noteworthy commentary in the recent Obama/Clinton Austin debate was Hillary's closing comment. A subtle and exceedingly well choreographed re-play of the "victim card" which has thus far been so eminently successful for her. Still again holding back the tears, Hillary inferred that she was the most qualified to be Commander-In-Chief because she "had been tested" by the public humiliation that she was forced to endure with the forced admission of Bill's Monica caper. The unfortunate truth is that in the absence of the astute retention of the infamous "blue dress", Hillary would have led the savaging-brigade against Monica precisely as she had done against Jennifer Flowers, Juanita Broderick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Wiley, etc., etc.. Of course, the by-invitation-only audience took the bait "hook, line and sinker".
The real question is do we want Hillary, the serial enabler, and Bill, the serial groper, to once again have the opportunity to scandalize the White House and the Presidency? Greg Neubeck
