Agudath Israel Urges Orthodox Jews to Elect Responsive Men to NY School Boards

Agudath Israel has launched a city-wide campaign to alert Orthodox Jews to the importance of electing “men who are sensitive to the needs of the non-public schools” in the March 19 school board elections under the new decentralization plan. At the same time, the organization said that if men who “discriminate” in the distribution of funds are elected, they will “press charges” against the Federal and State governments to revert to centralized distribution of funds.
