Jews on de Blasio’s Inauguration Team

Bill de Blasio is getting ready for his inauguration.

Almost exactly one month before the January 1 date when he’ll take the oath of office, the mayor-elect rolled out his inaugural committee today, a list of names “from all five boroughs, every community and every walk of life,” as his transition team put it in a press release.
