Assemblyman Ari Brown (R-Cedarhurst) recently presented an official Assembly Proclamation to Five Towns resident and Sephardic Jewish Community liaison Michael Edery to recognize his vast accomplishments and philanthropic efforts on Long Island.
A proud member of the Sephardic Jewish community, Michael emigrated from England in 1990. After quickly becoming a popular lecturer in Talmud and Jewish theology at the young age of 25, Michael began a career in commercial real estate, founding the Paradigm Funding Group in 1999. He continues to hold lectures on various topics of Jewish theology and Talmud and often generously donates his time and resources to causes that strike a chord with him, including at-risk teens, organ donation and special needs children.
“Michael has led a truly extraordinary life, and it is my honor to recognize all he has done for the local Jewish community, academia, the real estate industry and our neighbors on Long Island,” Brown said. “Michael has had a positive impact on all those around him, and his charitable and altruistic endeavors are a shining example of the generosity and compassion we should all strive to share with others. I am proud to call him a friend and a colleague.”
