November 2 is our opportunity. It’s Election Day for the governor, legislature and local races—the very people who impact funding and services for our schools and yeshivot.
We can—and we MUST—turn out to vote.
New Jersey allocates millions of dollars yearly to strengthen school security, pay for quality STEM educators to prepare our students for the future, remedial services, transportation and much more.
A strong Jewish vote is a powerful way to help ensure elected officials focus on our needs and concerns. That’s why we are working together with each other and Teach NJ to get out the vote, and urge support of government programs that help offset tuition, make our schools more affordable and ensure the safety of our schools.
For the very first time this year, take advantage of early voting from October 23-October 31 at an early voting site near you. You can still request to vote by mail or vote at your polling place on November 2.
Our schools, parents and communities are counting on us to vote and be heard, to help make our schools more secure, affordable and strong.Sincerely,Rabbi Saul Zucker, Ben Porat YosefRav Aryeh Stechler, Heichal HaTorahMs. Rachel Zivic, Kellman Brown AcademyRabbi Chaim Greenwald, Politz Day School of Cherry HillRabbi Daniel Loew, Rabbi Pesach Raymon YeshivaRabbi Daniel Price, Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North JerseyMrs. Orite Rubinstein, Lubavitch on the PalisadesMrs. Yoti Golan, The Hebrew AcademyMrs. Tikvah Wiener, The Idea SchoolRabbi Ami Neuman, The JEC High SchoolRabbi Daniel Alter, The Moriah SchoolRabbi Shlomo Adelman, Torah Academy of Bergen CountyRabbi Jonathan Knapp, Yavneh AcademyRabbi Shlomo Schwartz, YBH of PassaicRabbi Eli Ciner, Yeshivat FrischRav Tomer Ronen, Yeshivat He’AtidMorah Rivky Ross, Yeshivat Netivot Montessori
