Margaret Tietz Recognizes Grace Meng’s Contribution to the Orthodox Community

“The Protect Cemeteries Act” will add an important tool in the arsenal for the protecting of the Jewish cemeteries. Rep. Meng was personally thanked her for that by Rabbi Niederman today, at an event arranged by the Vaad Harabanim of Queens at the Margaret Tietz Nursing & Rehabilitation Center to mark the passage of the law. Congresswoman Meng thanked Dr. Bernard Fryshman, leader of the Conference of Academicians for the Protection of Jewish Cemeteries that works very closely with Asra Kadisha on the preservation of cemeteries, who was advocating for such a bill since 2007, and the brothers Rabbi Pinchas Hecht, Executive Director of the Mir Yeshiva, and Rabbi Avrohom Hecht of the Vaad Harabanim of Queens, for bringing it to her attention. - See more at:
