The Beis Medrash Govoah Roshei Yeshiva joined in the call to write letters to the New York State Education Department regarding their overreaching regulations.

In the letter, the Roshei Yeshiva stress while this issue may appear to some to be a New York issue, it is not. They state ‘This danger not only affects those in New York but to all Yeshivos in America.”

In fact, GL reported a similar ‘movement by RUOC‘ targeting the Lakewood yeshivas, in the footsteps of YAFFED.

It is important to note ‘FAA activist,’ R’ Klein, who is a Toein in a Lakewood Bes din, supports YAFFED. He has multiple Facebook posts promoting Moster & Co.

Background

The State Education Department has proposed new regulations to control all private schools, including Yeshivas.

While this effort was thrown out by the NYS Supreme Court following lawsuits brought by Agudath Israel, PEARLS, and Torah Umesorah this past April, this is another attempt.
This time, the law requires a comment period for citizens to weigh in.

These regulations are similar to the previous Guidelines: dictating about a dozen secular subjects our Yeshivas must teach, for how long (4-5 hrs./day), and will give local public school districts the authority to approve or shut down our schools.

Results, grades, competencies, graduation rates, or other factors regarding equivalency to public schools are not taken into account for these purposes.

The proposed regulations are opposed by the vast majority of private schools and parents across the state.

HaRav Elya Brudny – Rosh yeshiva of the Mirrer Yeshiva and member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah discussed the issue last year. Watch:

HaRav Yisroel Reisman, Rav of the Agudah of Madison and Rosh yeshiva Torah V’daas discussed the issue last year. Watch:

Due to the urgency of the matter, the two Roshei Yeshiva, last year, wrote an Op-Ed to the Wall street journal.

To persuade the Board of Regents to reject the proposed regulations, Agudath Israel of America and PEARLS have spearheaded a joint campaign to raise awareness about what is at stake and the consequences if the regulations, as is, are approved.  

All are encouraged to submit comments at YeshivosByChoice.org, an easy to use portal set up by the Agudah for this purpose. Alternatively, one can text 646.766.1110, and the system will prompt to send a letter.

    • Dear Avrohom Wrona,
      According to this GreaterLakewood article, your good friend, Shlomo Klein, supports the new regulations on Yeshivos, as well as Yaffed. Why are you going against your good friend?

  1. Why do you have an obvious agenda against FAA? Other than just sharing your personal opinion that he supports YAFFED based on some attention-drawing clips he linked to, do you have anything that’s actually concrete?

    The mere fact that someone posts a given clip is no proof that he supports the statements made or the behaviors expressed in that clip. (And besides, who even cares what FAA feels about the secular studies issue.)

    So again, do you have any actual proof to back up your otherwise baseless claim??

    • “Why do you have an obvious agenda against FAA?” Our about page says “P.S. We are a drop biased

      Beliefs that are against our Jewish values e.g. abortions, will be frowned upon & we will not be P.C. (politically correct) about it.”

      This is one example of that.

      ” Other than just sharing your personal opinion that he supports YAFFED based on some attention-drawing clips he linked to, do you have anything that’s actually concrete?” that is laughable. Mr Klein posts on FAA messages from Moster about sending in letters to support them! What more evidence do you need? But GL has lots more evidence.

      “So again, do you have any actual proof to back up your otherwise baseless claim??”
      Again, he posted MULTIPLE times about Moster never about PEARLS. Additionally, he had other posts where he shared personal information against other people regarding his days in Yeshiva etc.

      But the actual clips on his page is more than enough’hard evidence’ that he supports YAFFED. Look, if this photo is quite ‘incriminating.’ (There is lots more)
      “And besides, who even cares what FAA feels about the secular studies issue.” – Apparently you do.

    • Old news. Start the video above & you’ll see it starts with that…
      The olim kept it low for a while since he is not a Rosh HAyeshiva, rather a Rosh Yeshiva – but he sat in meetings for years…For about a year or two it has been more official.
