OU Advocacy-Teach NYS Applauds New York Voters’ Approval of Smart Schools Bond Act

05 Nov 2014

Following a full-scale Get Out the Vote campaign urging the New York Jewish community to vote yes for the Smart Schools Bond Act of 2014, OU Advocacy-Teach NYS applauds the voters’ choice to pass the referendum, which can provide up to $32 million to New York Jewish day schools and yeshivas for technology equipment and upgrades.

The Smart Schools Bond Act was approved by more than 61 percent of the voters.

“Our field directors worked tirelessly to ensure that our entire network of Jewish day school and yeshiva leaders and parents understood the potential outcome this referendum could have for their schools,” said Jeff Leb, New York State Director for OU Advocacy, the non-partisan public policy arm of the Orthodox Union. “They helped get the Smart Schools Bond Act across the finish line.”
