In introducing Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the Appeal of Conscience Foundation awards dinner, Henry Kissinger made note of his own public service as National Security Advisor in the White House and Secretary of State in the 1970s.

“The only reason I mention it,” he said, “is because never before and never since has the White House and the State Department been as amicable as it was then.”

As the New York Jewish community gathered last month at the Park East Synagogue to celebrate Arthur Schneier’s 50th year as the shul’s rabbi, State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver proclaimed, “Here’s to the next 50 years.”

“That’s ridiculous!” declared Ed Koch. “I wish you 120!”

The former mayor recalled when he had a stroke in 1987 and the rabbi came to him in the hospital. “Say this prayer after me in Hebrew,” Rabbi Schneier told him.
