NEW YORK -- Chris Christie is getting a second chance to impress Jewish leaders after a recent stumble that upset some of the GOP's most powerful donors.

The New Jersey governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate gives the keynote address Sunday (about 2:30 p.m. Las Vegas time) at the Champions of Jewish Values International awards gala in New York.

Also expected to attend are Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, U.S. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and major political donor Sheldon Adelson.

Christie was forced to apologize to Adelson after addressing the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas just seven weeks ago. Christie angered Adelson and others by referring to the West Bank and East Jerusalem as "occupied territories."

Adelson donated more than $90 million to Republican candidates and their allies in the 2012 election.
