Yeshiva Bonim Lamokom Visits Albany

Children from Yeshiva Bonim Lamokom came to visit Albany on Wednesday morning. It was an extraordinary time for the children, but even more so for me and my fellow legislators who were fortunate enough to meet these special kids and their very special teachers.

Yeshiva Bonim Lamokom is a special education yeshiva for high-functioning boys with Down Syndrome and other developmental delays. The yeshiva took an overnight trip to Albany and I was delighted to meet with them as they toured the Capital building. One of the boys--a loyal listener to my radio show--introduced me to his classmates. Thank you Rabbi Zev Horowitz for sharing your students with us in Albany!
