|Info||Pesach Osina learned from a young age the importance of working on behalf of the community. Born in Brooklyn to parents who were well known for their kindness and charity, Pesach moved in 1999 to Far Rockaway when he married Far Rockaway native, Fraidy Lichtman, and they decided to raise their family there. |
Pesach immediately got involved in Far Rockaway community life - as an active board member of the Jewish Community Council (JCCRP) and a founding member of the Rockaway Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). He started a holiday toy collection and distribution organization that provides toys to hundreds of needy families. In addition, Pesach used his love for politics to advance the needs of the community by actively advocating with local elected officials.
After helping elect Phil Goldfeder to the NYS Assembly in September of 2011, Pesach joined Goldfeder’s government staff as Community Liaison and put his experience and skills to work for the community at the government level. Pesach has carved out a name for great work, responsiveness and community service.
Pesach’s passion for helping others has been most evident during the last few months – prior to and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Pesach worked with government officials and community leaders doing to prepare the community as much as possible for the impending storm. As the storm was raging, he worked throughout the night with local organizations to communicate with and to meet the needs of stranded families. In the days and nights following the storm, Pesach travelled throughout the community visiting relief sites and working with community leaders to ensure that all of the community needs were met.
As he runs for City Council in the February 19th Special Election, Pesach has the vision, ability, skill set and experience to best represent the residents of Far Rockaway.
