While schools were closed for the federal holiday last week, over 500 Jewish educators participated in an annual professional development conference for yeshivah and day school professionals. Teachers and principals from 14 schools in Metro New York attended the Annual Yeshiva Day School Day of Learning, run by The Jewish Education Project (formerly known as the Board of Jewish Education of Greater New York, or BJE).

Some Queens askonim and lay leaders met with Councilman Donovan Richards (Queens Boro President candidate) last week to discuss pertinent issues affecting the Queens Jewish community. As one of the attendees stated “Donovan answered our questions and had a positive vision of what direction he would like for Queens to go. It was a pleasure to speak with him.”
