Bobover Yeshivah Visits State Capitol in Albany


A group of about 200 talmidim of the Bobover Yeshiva in Boro Park witnessed their government in action Tuesday during a tour of the State Capitol hosted by Sen. Simcha Felder (D-Brooklyn).

A State Capitol tour guide accompanied the eighth- and ninth-grade boys and their chaperones through the Capitol’s museum, the Senate Chamber, the Executive Chamber (also known as the Red Room), the Hall of Governors, and the Flag Room, which displays over 1,000 different flags from various wars.

“There is so much history in the Capitol and so much history being made every single day,” Felder said.

As part of the tour, the students learned about the legislative process, including how a bill becomes a law, and had a chance to greet other lawmakers.
