In advance of Election Day, a strongly worded Kol Koreh with signatures from over 70 prominent Rabbonim is urging local residents to go out and vote. This Kol Koreh reflects the strong support and hakaras hatov Rabbonim feel toward the elected officials who have capably served the frum community for so many years.
The Kol Koreh detail a number of critical issues that face our community and highlights how essential it is that everyone votes on Election Day — on Tuesday, November 3.
Rabbonim and Askanim from throughout the greater Monsey area united to make everyone in the community aware of the current political climate and to stress the importance of defending our frum neighborhoods, yeshivos, mosdos, and batei midrashim.
This coming Tuesday features critical elections for Ramapo Town Supervisor, as well as for two seats of the Ramapo Town Board.
On one side we have Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, Councilman Samuel Baruch Tress and Councilwoman Brenda Logan-Charles, all of whom have dedicated records of fighting for our community each and every day. They are being challenged by people who want to limit the growth of our community and subvert us.
Our esteemed community leaders who regularly deal with the town officials praise Supervisor St. Lawrence for his genuinely good heart and caring for town residents. He is always receptive when there are issues facing the frum community which need to be addressed, they say.
On the other hand, the Rabbonim recognize that the other side’s objective is to inhibit our growth and to cause problems for our community’s continued success.
The Rabbonim firmly believe that the great progress that has been made over the last number of years, which came as a result from the hard work and dedication of the community and its elected officials, can be wiped out in a single moment if the other side wins. In the event that happens, Monsey will become a place in which frum people will have difficulty living and going about their daily lives.
These well-respected Rabbonim are asking the entire frum community to daven for the future of our town and our community, and to vote in Tuesday’s election. In order to protect our Torah way of life, the Rabbonim are working diligently to make the frum community aware of the critical importance of next Tuesday’s vote.
The fact that so many distinguished Rabbonim are joining this effort shows just how important this election is. This act of great unity on the part of our community leaders is a clear sign that our community must also unite and follow their lead.
The community’s Rabbonim strongly urges every eligible voter to go out and vote on Tuesday. Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, Councilman Samuel Baruch Tress, and Councilwoman Brenda Logan-Charles have all been longtime friends and supporters of our community and have worked to advance the needs of our community in numerous ways. They need and deserve the support of every resident so that they can continue their great work on our behalf.
