RECOGNIZING JAY KISLAK -- (House of Representatives - January 28, 2004)
(Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I would like to recognize Jay Kislak, an outstanding member of the South Florida community.
Jay is the chairman of the Jay I. Kislak Foundation, which is engaged in a collection of rare books, manuscripts, maps, and indigenous art of the Americas.
Through his foundation, Jay has worked to ensure that present and future generations will have a deeper understanding of our glorious past.
As a testament to his expansive knowledge and appreciation for art, Jay was appointed by President Bush to be chairman of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee, a group tasked with directing the government's efforts to protect antiquities around the world.
I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing Jay Kislak for his profound contribution to the cultural enrichment of our community and our Nation.
