Statement By NCFJE Chair, Rabbi Shea Hecht: School Choice
Rabbi Shea Hecht issued an urgent call to action regarding ongoing efforts for parental choice in education. "The greatest domestic crisis in America is our failed educational system, and the manner is which it is taxed and funded is an affront to religious liberty. We need to learn the lessons of history and speak out when our individual and religious liberty is being violated.
"A coalition of organizations and private citizens from a broad cross section of the community has formed to make parental choice in education a reality. We have schedualled a rally in front of the Essex County Courthouse, 50 West Market Street, Newark, on Thursday, July 2, from noon to 2:00 P.M.
As this is obviously a matter of Hatzalas Nefashos, everyone who cares about the future of education should make an effort to attend this event."
