On Friday, June 14th, 2019, Mayor Mike Ghassali was welcomed at the Mor Aphrem Center to give a lecture to our Syriac community about “Why is it important to be involved in politics? Politics and the separation of Church and State. How to get involved and make a difference? During his lecture he mentioned that on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019, he announced his candidacy for U.S. Congressman. We would like to wish a good luck to Mayor Mike Ghassali of Montvale, New Jersey who is a member of the Syriac community. We are proud of him, and praying and wishing him all the best. May our good Lord guide you always.
