Released Time Program Beginning in Monsey
Released time is a program that, under state and federal law, allows children in public schools to be released from regular classes one hour a week to attend religious classes. Since 1941 thousands of children in the greater NYC area have benefited from classes where local shluchim and bochurim have provided exciting Jewish programming and enriched their Jewish identity.
A released time program is currently in the process of being formed in Rockland County. If you know of any families with children in local public schools please mention this to them and please email Rabbi Gil Hami at firstname.lastname@example.org he can be in touch with them.
If you are interested in being involved either by teaching a weekly class or supporting financially, please contact Rabbi Hami, as well.
