Alliance for Free Choice in Education
The Rebbe’s Inspiration for School Choice
Fellow School Choice Advocates,
Here is the radio interview of Dennis Prager with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin on his new book The Rebbe.
It was the Rebbe’s urgent call, back in 1983, that sparked the efforts leading to the creation of Alliance for Free Choice in Education and the proposed D.C. Civil Rights Act for Equal Educational Opportunity, which would serve as a model and trail blazer for all 50 states.
The Rebbe had called upon both children and adults to turn to their public officials and “request the nullification of the shocking policy that religious schools cannot receive equitable financial assistance from the government.”
Please call your Members of Congress at 202-224-3121 and inspire them to sponsor the bill. Voters in the 11th Congressional District, primarily Morris County, please call 202-225-5034 and speak to Cassie Coggeshall, aide to Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, and write to Cassie.Coggeshall@mail.house.gov and Rodney.Frelinghuysen@mail.house.gov.
Your personal concerns and experience may have more impact than imaginable. Your phone call and email may be the very one that brings desperate relief to countless children and parents, now and for generations to come.
