    He's a Lubavitcher -- a Chasidic group that unlike many Chasidic Jews are active in outreach to non-religious or less religious Jews (meaning they try to convince people like me to join them).
    He seems well-connected to the top Republicans in NJ:

    The New Jersey Senate invited Rabbi Yosef Carlebach, founder and director of Chabad House at Rutgers University to open the session as guest chaplain. The rabbi was invited by Senator Jennifer Beck and Secretary Hicks of the NJ Senate.

    Before the opening prayer, Rabbi Carlebach was introduced and met privately with ten senators, including Senator Beck, Senator Singer, Senator Kean, Senator Kyrillos, Senator Thompson, and Secretary Hicks.

    He also seems to have gone to Israel with Christie:

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
