    I am a retired English professor and have taught many young people from religious families who were studying various technical subjects (for example, ophthalmic dispensing, radiologic technology, nursing, dental hygiene, computer-assisted design drafting, hotel and restaurant management, among many other fields) at a CUNY college. They emerged with a two-year or four-year degree that enabled them to earn a living, and their religious practice and faith were not in the least bit harmed, diminished, compromised. But to enter a CUNY college, one must have a high school diploma and certain minimal skills in English reading and writing, and in math. There is no reason why young people from haredi backgrounds should not acquire such basic skills, and to argue otherwise is an insult to the genuine yidishkayt of the haymishe and frime mishpokhes from which these young men and women came.

    I hope your message resonates in Israel so that it will encourage implementation of laws
    that will allow my grandchildren to have the secular education that they need and deserve
