bill-deblasio in articleJewish leaders are pressuring Mayor de Blasio to provide NYPD school safety agents at religious schools, with a letter signed by 24 city rabbis sent to Hizzoner on Monday.

The rabbis urged de Blasio to support Intro 65, a school-safety bill in City Council that would allow religious schools to request safety agents for their campuses.

“We believe that all children, regardless of where they attend school or what faith they follow, must be safe at school,” wrote the rabbis, who represent more than 15,000 congregants.
