*An urgent appeal – and not for money!
A PLEA TO KLAL YISROEL
TELL NEW YORK STATE TO LEAVE US ALONE!!!
New York State is proposing new Yeshiva regulations.
WE CANNOT EXIST WITH THESE REGULATIONS!
The NYC Board of Education runs the Public Schools.
They will have the right to declare our education inadequate.
They will have the right to choose our teachers.
They will have the right to force parents to remove their children from our Yeshiva.
They will have the right to force us to teach nine additional subjects, beyond Math, Science, History & English.
They will have the right to prosecute parents of Yeshiva children.
WE CANNOT TEACH THE ‘FAMILY VALUES’ OF THE NYC GOVERNMENT.
Even yeshivas that offer Regents exams are subject to this review, triggered when any yeshiva-hater asks for it..
WHAT CAN WE DO? The law entitles us to offer Public Comment on these regulations. The law invites us to offer comments.
WHO CAN COMMENT? Anyone – you do not have to be in New York.
Please help us by clicking on the link below TODAY and speaking up for Yeshivos. Tell NYS, in respectful terms, that we cannot live with these regulations. Tell NYS that Yeshivas offer a sound education. Tell NYS that our students do far better than Public School students. Tell them your experience. Tell NYS to leave us alone!
EACH MEMBER OF A HOUSEHOLD IS ENTITLED TO SUBMIT A SEPARATE COMMENT. PLEASE ADD YOUR VOICE BY OFFERING YOUR COMMENT – EXPLAIN THAT OUR YESHIVAS DO NOT NEED GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE.
TO COMMENT USING THE YESHIVA DARCHEI TORAH LINK
OUR TALMIDIM THANK YOU!
Rabbi Yaakov Bender
Yeshiva Darchei Torah
Please leave the yeshevas alone
More Agudah propaganda. Don’t fall for it! The law will only hurt Chassidic yeshivas that don’t teach math or science
We teach our children secular and religious subjects. The secular are comparable to the putting schools in most cases. The religious studies include ethics, morals, rationality, responsibility, history and Bible studies including Hebrew studies.
Out schools try their best to keep OUT the corrupting influences of the secular society around us, as the fabric of society is disintegrating.
Pear let us do the uniquely excellent job we are doing!
This is simply nonsense. The actual proposed regulations, available for anyone to read on the state’s Web site (assuming, of course, you can read English), do not allow selection of teachers, removal of children, or prosecution of parents, and the additional subjects include the Constitution and civics, and they do not target yeshivos. If yeshivos don’t want to comply with these long-existing, BASIC educational standards, they can choose not to accept any state government funding. Meanwhile, any school in New York State that opposes teaching basic English, math and social literacy is condemning its graduates to ignorance and poverty.
Judaism values knowledge, study, and truth. This effort flies in the face of all three.
Unfortunately secular historians don’t accept the Torah’s account as history so we’ll have to fight their attempts to bring their views to our schools
Have you considered Aliyah? There’s actually a place on earth where Jews are free to be Jews!
Ari-free: Please remind me what the Torah says about American history, or the French Revolution, or the Spanish Armada. Is there some tractate that covers the War of 1812, or the Great Depression?
What the Torah *doesn’t* say is that Jews should be ignorant of the galus societies in which they find themselves, or become so ignorant of basic mathematics and spoken/written English that they cannot pursue parnassa. Why are you so determined to (a) ignore what the regulation actually says and (b) ensure our children get a functional education above and beyond their Torah studies?
The yeshiva really try keep our children from all this new Media that actually change the brain of the kids,
We all in the same boat I’m very good attention how the kids pick and how the kids respect and behave, and we have the TORA the teache us how don’t be better person for everyone.
Please give us continue and be proud for us.
You don’t want us to be like you and you will want to be like us, everyone have is on way.
I don’t understand how he can endorse Hochul and in the same breath rail against her state education policies. Vote for zeldin, and you won’t have these issues
