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 Yosef Rav Aryeh Stechler, Heichal HaTorah Ms. Rachel Zivic, Kellman Brown Academy Rabbi Chaim Greenwald, Politz Day School of Cherry Hill Rabbi Daniel Loew, Rabbi Pesach Raymon Yeshiva Rabbi Daniel Price, Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey Mrs. Orite Rubinstein, Lubavitch on the Palisades Mrs. Yoti Golan, The Hebrew Academy Mrs. Tikvah Wiener, The Idea School Rabbi Ami Neuman, The JEC High School Rabbi Daniel Alter, The Moriah School Rabbi Shlomo Adelman, Torah Academy of Bergen County Rabbi Jonathan Knapp, Yavneh Academy Rabbi Shlomo Schwartz, YBH of Passaic Rabbi Eli Ciner, Yeshivat Frisch Rav Tomer Ronen, Yeshivat He’Atid Morah Rivky Ross, Yeshivat Netivot Montessori
