Jersey City Boy

Joanne Palmer | The Jewish Standard | March 14, 2014

The story of the new mayor of Jersey City is a goulash – a rich, highly seasoned, aromatic stew, full of disparate ingredients that somehow blend together.

This variant is kosher.

And for added authenticity, it’s Hungarian.

Steven Fulop’s story is both as deeply American and as fully Jewish as one person’s story could be – it is our own 21st-century version of the great American dream.
