How many times have you thought to yourself “I wish I could do something for the tens of thousands of Jewish children who are being denied a basic education and robbed of their futures?” People ask us all the time what they can do.

Never has there been a clearer answer! Right now, just two minutes of your time can make all the difference.

New York State Education Department is soliciting comment from the public on proposed regulations that, if implemented, would drastically improve the education system in all Yeshivas that are currently failing their students.

We have created an easy website for you to submit comment. You don’t need to be a Yeshiva graduate or a parent of a current student. ANYONE can submit public comment. And given the gravity of the problem, we urge you to think of it as your DUTY to speak up on behalf of these helpless children.

Visit our website here to submit your comment.

P. S. Some elite private school parents have expressed concern about the effects of these regulations on their schools. Here’s an information sheet that answers some of their questions and responds to some of their concerns.

Yaffed’s board president, Anita Altman, and Executive Director, Naftuli Moster, recently sat down for an interview with Ronnie Eldridge, host of the prestigious Eldridge & co. show on CUNY TV.

This is the most thorough summary of the issue of secular education in ultra-Orthodox and Hasidic Yeshivas, and if you were previously unfamiliar with the issue, please take the time to watch it in its entirety.

And feel free to share it with friends and colleagues.
