More than 300 members of the New Jersey Jewish community attended Wednesday’s launch of Teach NJS, a new initiative of New Jersey Jewish day schools and yeshivas and the OU Advocacy Center to mobilize the community to become more politically engaged, in order to influence and change the way the state of New Jersey funds non-public education. Through Teach NJS, the New Jersey Jewish community can “fundamentally change the way they approach politics,” according to Josh Pruzansky, Regional Director of OU Advocacy-NJ.
The coalition includes 18 schools, the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey, which have joined OU Advocacy in this effort. The launch event was held at Congregation Rinat Yisrael in Teaneck, N.J.
