Special to the Jewish Week

This was Benjamin Brafman’s 11th year emceeing the annual Tower of Hope gala of the Israel Cancer Research Fund in March at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York, and he continued his time-honored routine of starting off with witty banter.

The prominent criminal defense lawyer was introduced as someone you should never know professionally.

He had just come from court where he represented his latest client: New York State Senator Carl Kruger of Brooklyn whom the feds charged with running a bribery racket for taking $1 million in return for political favors.
