What does Yaffed hope to achieve?


YAFFED's goal is to see Hasidic and ultra-Orthodox Yeshivas offering their students a substantial general education in subjects such as English, math, science, social studies, geography and more. Yaffed's goal is for these subjects to be offered to elementary and high school students for at least three hours each day. Yaffed also hopes to bring about a change in attitude toward general education within ultra-Orthodox and Hassidic communities. YAFFED wants these religious institutions to understand that education is a Jewish value, and hopes to work together with community leaders to improve curricula in compliance with New York State law.
