Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is expected to return to New York in two weeks for a high-dollar fundraiser in Riverdale, New York.

The event is hosted by Howard Jonas, the founder of IDT Corp., and by NORPAC and costs $1,000 per person or $2,700 for a hosting role and photo opportunity, according to the invitation obtained by Jewish Insider.

Jonas is also the CEO of Genie Energy, a company that is now drilling gas on the Golan Heights in Israel. Earlier this year, he hosted Ted Cruz over for a Sabbath dinner, according to Politico.

Ben Heller, a philanthropist from Lawrence, NY, and Aliza and Michael Davis are listed as co-hosts.

Heller co-hosted a fundraiser last week at the offices of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP in NYC. Almost 300 people, mostly Orthodox Jewish community members, attended the event.

Rubio is currently polling in 3rd place, behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
