Voters in Ramapo will go to the polls today to vote in a pivotal referendum which potentially can have far-reaching effects on the local Jewish community.
We urge residents in the area to reject efforts to change the way members of the local Ramapo Board are elected. Advocates for these changes have made no secret that their intent is to weaken the political influence of Orthodox Jews in the town. These changes would also potentially leave the local African American community without a council seat.
The stakes are too high: Take the time and vote no!
