Rabbi Karasick Commends Nixon’s Pledge to Reverse Closing Down of Private Schools

The President of American Jewry’s national orthodox synagogue organization suggested today, in a letter to President Nixon, that “legal ways must be found to let the parent determine in which school the City, the State, and the Federal Government should support his child’s education, not limiting this choice to the public school.” Rabbi Joseph Karasick, President of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, commended President Nixon for his recent statement that the religious community can count on his support to halt the trend of the closing down of parochial schools.
