    I was especially moved by the testimony of Haydee, the young lady who discussed her upbringing in Satmar school in Boro Park. What a courageous young women. A real inspiration in my view.

    I am happy to support Yaffed’s efforts to undo the Felder amendment. It is a slap in the face of educational standards. Aren’t the Jewish people supposed to support education? Instead, the current situation maintains children in ignorance.

    I think you are doing such important work. I had read about the educational problems in Hassidic yeshivas, but until I saw a billboard for YAFFED I did not realize that there was an organization that was standing up for the rights of children in these communities.

    Change must happen with the hasidic community both from the outside and within. Yaffed tells the city and state that the lack of education cannot go on. Work must be done from within too to cultivate better education. Yaffed is happening now with your donation.

    I just made a small donation that is restricted: it must be used to pay salaries.

    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
