New Jersey - Englewood Charter Garners Major Orthodox Supporters
New Jersey - The application for a controversial Hebrew charter school in Englewood, N.J., includes letters of support from two prominent Orthodox pulpit rabbis, as well as from several other high-profile Jewish leaders.
Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO for kashrut at the Orthodox Union and spiritual leader of Englewoodâ€™s Shomrei Emunah, contributed a letter of support that was part of Shalom Academyâ€™s 2010 charter application, as did Rabbi Shmuel Goldin of Congregation Ahavath Torah.
Other well-known Jews providing letters of support include author and TV personality Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and Foundation for Jewish Camp CEO Jeremy Fingerman, both Englewood residents.
The application was first posted late last week on the Englewood public school districtâ€™s website.
