A historic conference of Principals and administrators of all Torah education institutions in New York State took place recently.
Together, they committed to stand united against our mutual enemies – those who want to infiltrate, and worse yet, contaminate the scared education of our next generation.
The hearts of those assembled were stirred with the roar of the speakers, urging to grasp to the urgency of the matter. They heard talks portraying the current situation, which holds a scary resemblance to the times of Communism. Should the bill pass, it would force our institutions to comply with government regulation which would taint the pure souls of our innocent Kinderlach with the impurities of the modern culture.
Rabbi Aron Arye Eisenberg opened the historic event in the name of the PEARLS.
Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zweibel Executive Vice-President of Agudas Yisroel said, “The Romans are standing outside our educational facilities, threatening to break the barriers. Who knows where we are headed? We must acknowledge that there is a war; we must proceed and win.”
Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman, Dean of Cheder Chabad of Monsey, Rabbi Chaim Dovid Kagan, Director of the Monsey Beis Chaya Mushka High School in Airmont, and Rabbi Lipa Brennan of Executive Director of Yeshivas Novominsk attended.
Speakers underscored the fact that the responsibility to guard the purity of our Torah education does not rest exclusively upon the shoulders of the PEARLS organization. Rather it depends on the full cooperation of the principals and administrators of the many Mosdos HaTorah throughout New York.
It was a special and powerful moment when the administrator of Mosdos Satmar in Kiryas Yoel, Rabbi Shlomo Zalmen Weiss, brought out a package of more than 12,000 signed letters from Kiryas Joel residents to the NYS Department of Education.
