Agudat Israel in America has called on all its members and members of the observant communities throughout the United States to participate in the current census. “Full participation of community members across the country is of paramount importance and is of great benefit to us. Filling out the form requires an investment of only a few minutes, but its impact may be felt for years.”
By law, the U.S. government is required to conduct a 10-year census of all residents living in its area. These days, the 2020 U.S. census is underway.
A call published by Agudat Israel in America states that the census results directly affect the ultra-Orthodox communities in many and varied ways: Private, including meetings) are determined, at least in part, on the basis of the census results. ”
“In addition, the level of representation of ultra-Orthodox communities in Congress and local and national legislative bodies is directly related to the size of our population, according to data obtained during the census. The only way to ensure that issues important to us are given preferential treatment in government is through adequate representation.”
Agudat Israel in America appeals to anyone who cares for the benefit of the ultra-Orthodox public, its growth and representation, to participate in the current census this year.
