Noting that the New York State Education Department’s proposed regulations endanger the chinuch of boys and girls in New York’s yeshivos and Bais Yaakovs, the Roshei Yeshiva of Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, New Jersey, took the uncommon step of issuing a letter on the topic.
In the letter, the Roshei Yeshiva explain that Lakewood residents should not see the proposed legislation as a threat merely to residents of New York, but “to all educational institutions in America.”
The Roshei Yeshiva closed by giving specific instruction to those who look to them for guidance: “Each of us should send letters to the New York State Department of Education to explain that the chinuch that is long established in our communities is our right and should stay that way.”
