Conference of Presidents Applauds Senate Passage of Never Again Education Act

New York, NY

 . . . Arthur Stark, Chairman, William Daroff, CEO, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Vice Chair of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

“We applaud the passage by the US Senate of the Never Again Education Act. This legislation, which passed unanimously, will spread awareness of the Shoah to the next generation by creating and funding the Holocaust Education Assistance Program with $10 million over five years. These funds would go toward ensuring that educators have the resources they need to teach these critically important lessons.
 
We thank Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) for leading the bipartisan effort in the Senate, as well as Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) for her persistent leadership on this issue, shepherding the legislation through the House of Representatives, where it passed by an overwhelming margin of 393-5 in January. We salute the Conference's member organizations that played a critical role in securing the passage of this legislation. We look forward to the bill being signed into law by the President and seeing its swift enactment.”​
