Agudath Israel of America congratulates all the winners in last night’s New York primaries. We salute as well all who competed as win or lose each candidate is playing an important role in the democratic process.

We are fortunate to live in a thriving democracy where at least one day a year it is the peoples chance to use their collective voices at the ballot box. Now that the people have spoken and made their choices, we look forward to the general election in November and to working with lawmakers from both parties to continue to advance the interests of our constituencies.
