On Monday, at a press conference, Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin defended yeshivas against the state’s proposal to invade and revamp curriculums. 

Dov Hikind joined the rally, and supporters in the background held signs that said “Democrats for Zeldin.” On the other hand, Zeldin slammed Governor Kathy Hochul and members of a powerful state education council showed less willingness to criticize Hasidic schools.

At the campaign event outside City Hall, Zeldin suggested that public schools should “follow the values” of Hasidic schools, not the other way around. Meanwhile, at a news conference on Monday, New York City mayor Eric Adams said he was “not concerned” with The Times’s findings, but emphasized that his administration was continuing a long-delayed city investigation into some Hasidic schools.

“I’m not going to watch a story. I want a thorough investigation. I want an independent review, and that’s what the city should do. And we’re going to look into that,” Mr. Adams said. The mayor added that all cases of child abuse in the schools must be reported and investigated.
