New York State Devotes 106 Days to Education

Apr 24, 2008 5:30 AM

A bipartisan consensus of New York state legislators took time from their budget proceedings to join Chabad-Lubavitch in dedicating 106 days to education.

Gov. David Patterson signed the proclamation, which was dedicated to the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, on the 106th anniversary of his birth.

Organized by Chabad-Lubavitch of Albany and the Lubavitch Youth Organization, the dedication began with a prayer delivered to both houses of the legislature and the giving of charity.
