Yeshiva's annual dinner.
Some of the country's top leaders

Hillary Rodham Clinton. Also in atten-
dance were U.S. Senators Carl Levin -
and Debbie Stabenow, Congressmen
Joe Knollenberg and Sander Levin, and
Governor Jennifer Granholm, who

arrived, everyone immediately rushed
forward to see her," he said. Ili
