Wolf Sender, a close confidant of New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and a haredi community insider, has been forced out as Brooklyn DA Kenneth Thompson’s Jewish community liaison.
Sender was pushed out of the $115,00-per-year job three days after Chanukah, the Daily News reported tonight.
Sender allegedly got the job through Hikind, who strongly backed Thompson during in Democratic Primary against then-incumbent Charles J. Hynes.
“We thank Wolf for his service and wish him the best. “The DA’s commitment to the Jewish community remains strong,” a spokesman for Thompson told the paper.
Sender helped Thompson host the annual DA’s Chanukah party on December 23 and was fired three days later.
A source familiar with the party said Thompson looked upset and distracted, and spent very little time there.
Sender was close to members of the haredi community who allegedly blocked investigations into child sex abuse cases.
It is unclear why he was fired.
