The service is set to take place at 11 a.m. Monday at Temple Emanu-El, on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Longtime Koch friend and spokesman George Arzt says other speakers expected at the service include Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Ido Aharoni, the Israeli consul general in New York.

Several of Koch's closest relatives and friends will also speak.

Koch died Friday at age 88.

He led the city for 12 years, with a colorful, unapologetic, often confrontational style that came to personify the New York of the l980s.
