Mayoral candidate Eric Adams visited Yeshiva Darchei Torah last week, touring its Weiss Vocational Center with Rabbi Baruch Rothman, and subsequently met with community leaders.

At the meeting, Adams, a former police captain who currently serves as Brooklyn borough president, discussed issues including public safety, resiliency, and religious freedom, including yeshiva education.

Adams had come under fire several months ago for saying he would enforce yeshiva compliance with governmental secular-studies standards, but subsequently has visited yeshivas and spoken in favor of acceptance of education offered  by different cultures. Last month, after visiting a Boro Park yeshiva with Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, Adams tweeted, “What I saw were young people excited to learn, Yiddish & English studies. We’re a diverse city, & our education system must be culturally sensitive to provide the highest quality education.”

Following the visit to Darchei Torah, Menashe Shapiro, a consultant to Adams’ campaign, told Hamodia, “Eric Adams has long understood the diversity of this city, and has a long-standing relationships in every corner of the Jewish community. His reaching out to Jewish leaders in all five boroughs is more than just seeking monolithic support for the election; it’s about building a broad governing coalition for when he’s mayor.”
