Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang met with students and leaders at two Far Rockaway yeshivas last week. At the Torah Academy for Girls, Dean Rabbi Meyer Weitman invited Yang to address students about current events in the city. He also toured Yeshiva Darchei Torah, viewing the school’s robust vocational training program and meeting with dozens of students.
Afterwards, Yang sat down with Jewish community leaders to hear their concerns and share his vision.
“I was honored to get to know the Far Rockaway community, and particularly enjoyed talking with young students who showed an incredible depth of knowledge on the issues that impact them the most,” Yang said. “I look forward to continuing these conversations with young people and community leaders across the city so we can work together to help New York reach its fullest potential.”
