How does Yaffed hope to accomplish its goals?

A:

Yaffed is working at the grassroots level to encourage Hasidic parents to demand a better education for their children.

At the same time, YAFFED is working to compel the Department of Education (DOE) to remedy this problem in collaboration with Yaffed staff and Yeshivas. Should the DOE prove an unwilling partner, Yaffed has retained attorney Norman Siegel, former director of the NYCLU, to bring the matter to court.

Yaffed is also educating local elected officials about the issue so that they can work to ensure that Hasidic children receive the education to which they are entitled.
