Representatives from a wide range of frum communities in New York, including two Chabad shluchim, delivered the Protect Chinuch petitions to the New York State Department of Education in Albany.

The petitions, numbering over 200,000 in total, were signed by yeshiva students, parents and alumni who oppose the proposed regulations for yeshivos that would severely affect the ability of parents to choose a chinuch as they desire.

The first batch of petitions, which already included thousands of physical forms, were delivered earlier this week to the New York State Department of Education in Albany. The forms were in addition to tens of thousands of emails and virtual petitions signed online.

Delivering the petitions were representatives of the frum communities in New York, including Satmar, Agudas Yisroel, Chabad and others, as well Rockland County Legislator Aron B. Wieder. Representing Chabad were shluchim Rabbi Yisroel Rubin, head shliach to Albany, and Rabbi Mendel Mathless of University Heights Chabad.

Activists involved in the campaign tell Anash.org that the battle is far from over, and more updates will be issued in the coming days regarding steps the Chabad community can, and will, be taking.
