A Federal Judge in NY has just scheduled a hearing for next Tuesday regarding summer camps.
As YWN has been reporting, following New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s crushing decision to disallow overnight camps this summer, the Agudath Israel of America-led Association of Jewish Camp Operators (AJCO) and several parents filed suit in federal court to overturn that decision.
Two days later, the AJCO requested a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to ask the court to immediately open overnight camps in New York State.
On Wednesday morning, a court hearing was scheduled for next Tuesday.

Everyone should daven for the success of allowing camps to be open. Yeshivos and Schools should have organized davening for this. It is extremely important.
I’m not trying to minimize the importance of sleep away camp, but I want to know why sleep away camp is so important for a frum child that there has to be a lawsuit? Where does it say that a frum child must go to sleep away camp or else it’s the worst thing in the world? There are plenty of frum Yeshivish Boys and bais Yaakov girls that never went to camp and are Baruch HaShem today leading beautiful frum lives with beautiful families.
Wow: Yeshivos and schools should have organized davening for this. Or maybe they should have organized tefilos for the reopening of the yeshivos and the shuls more so then sleepaway camp.
