NORPAC Hosts Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL) at Englewood Event

NORPAC welcomed Congresswoman Lois Frankel (D-FL-22) to an Englewood event hosted by the Gontownik family. Her district stretches from West Palm Beach through Boca Raton and down to Fort Lauderdale.

Lois Frankel was one of the 25 Democratic members of the House of Representatives who voted against the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or “Iran Deal,” during last year’s heated debate over the issue. This event was held partly in recognition of her vote against the deal.

Frankel, raised in New York City to a Jewish family, has visited Israel several times. During her speeches on the House floor, she has lauded Israel’s advancements in agriculture, medicine and technology. She has voted in favor of robust funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system and for U.S.-Israeli cooperation on anti-missile systems like David’s Sling.

The congresswoman has taken the lead in speaking on the House floor in honor of Israel’s Independence Day and emphasized her unwavering commitment to protect Israel and foster U.S.-Israeli relations. Most recently, she co-sponsored bipartisan resolutions expressing concern over anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement within the Palestinian Authority, and in support of U.S.-Israeli economic cooperation, respectively.

Congresswoman Lois Frankel is running for reelection in 2016.
