Agudath Israel Hails Decision

A New York State Supreme Court justice in Albany has invalidated the State Education Department (SED)’s recently enacted guidelines for evaluating the education provided at private schools. Agudath Israel of America, one of the plaintiff groups that challenged the SED guidelines in court, welcomed the ruling as “a major victory in the battle to preserve the educational autonomy of yeshivos and other nonpublic schools.”

The National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) this week issued the following statement in the wake of yesterday’s deadly shooting at a synagogue north of San Diego. A man entered Chabad of Poway during the morning services on the last day of Pesach and began shooting, killing one congregant and wounding several others, including Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, the synagogue’s spiritual leader.

The Yeshiva of Central Queens gratefully acknowledges the Names, Not Numbers© Program that has taught our students about the Holocaust through the accounts of eyewitnesses, provided them with interviewing, filming, and editing skills, and, most importantly, enabled meaningful relationships to be forged between the survivors and our students. YCQ has benefited tremendously from its participation in this Legacy Heritage project.
