Somerset resident Gary Rosenthal will travel to Israel next month as a delegate to the quadrennial World Zionist Congress.

A longtime Somerset resident has been chosen to attend the quadrennial World Zionist Congress in Israel in October.

Gary Rosenthal, a resident of the Renaissance at Raritan Valley active adult development, will attend the meeting as one of 25 delegates representing MERCAZ USA, which is the “voice of Conservative Jewry within the World Zionist Organization,” according to its Web site.

The 37th World Zionist Congress is set to run from Oct. 20-22 in Jerusalem.

Rosenthal’s selection as one of MERCAZ USA’s delegates comes “in recognition of his volunteer service in the various organizations as well as Franklin Township Zoning Board and Human Relations Commission chairman,” according to a press release from the organization.

Rosenthal is also a member of Temple Beth El in Somerset and former Synagogue president, as well as a former New Jersey Regional president and International Treasurer and Financial Secretary of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.

A retired banker, Rosenthal has lived in Franklin since 1969. This will be his fourth trip to Israel, he said.

“This is an honor indeed as I will be part of a delegation who will meet leaders of Israel to discuss current problems and goals and offer resolutions to keep our mutual valued relationship strong,” Rosenthal said.
