New Jersey Governor John Corzine made a surprise appearance at a Chabad dinner in Northwest NJ, last week.

The Governor greeted the 400 friends and supporters celebrating the 20th Anniversary Founders Dinner in the Crystal Plaza.

"I know in my own life that with out a sense of purpose and sense of blessing, life loses its meaning. I have to congratulate Chabad for their great leadership and for the spirituality and blessing they bring to the community," said the Governor.

Mr. Corzine spoke warmly of Rabbi Asher Herson, who leads the Chabad of Northwest, New Jersey community, with a Jewish population of 15,000, emphasizing his open acceptance of everyone, regardless of background or financial status.
