A Worthy Cause

I have been asked to announce the opening of the Jewish Board of Advocates for Children, Inc. I generally do not do this sort of thing since this is not a bulletin board type of blog and I don’t want it to become one. But every once in a while I am sufficiently impressed to do so and this is one of those times.

One of the reasons is the individual involved. Eliot Pasik’s efforts have had a real impact on some of the more serious issues facing religious Jewry.

At their website you will find their major initiative and the Position Paper to the New York State Legislature advocating child protection laws for religious and all nonpublic schools.
