For the past few months, and especially now, with the NY State legislative session in full swing, representatives of Agudath Israel of America can be seen in Albany on a regular basis, advocating for the yeshiva community. These efforts lay the groundwork for Agudah’s major mission, which is scheduled for March 6th.
As part of this ongoing advocacy, Agudath Israel has been holding meetings with yeshiva administrators across the state, with the most recent ones held last week in Williamsburg and Queens. These latest meetings were in addition to those held in December and January in Boro Park, Flatbush, Far Rockaway/Five Towns and Monsey, just before the start of the legislative session.
The series of meetings served as a forum to discuss current legislative priorities and agenda items. They were also an invaluable opportunity to listen to the suggestions and concerns of those who run our Mosdos HaTorah.
Agudath Israel will continue its efforts on behalf of yeshivos and their parent bodies in the weeks and months ahead.
