Rabbi Josh Pruzansky Leaves Agudah, Joins OU
Rabbi Josh Pruzansky has departed from his position with Agudath Israel of New Jersey and has been appointed as Regional Director of Public Policy (NJ) at the Institute for Public Affairs (IPA), the public policy arm of the Orthodox Union (OU).
This position will have Rabbi Pruzansky advocating on behalf of the New Jersey Jewish community in Trenton on a wide array of public policy issues, with a particular focus on initiatives aimed at reducing the financial strain that yeshivos, day schools and families face in educating our community’s children.
Rabbi Pruzansky will work with Mr. Howie Beigelman, who has done extensive work in New Jersey during the past few years, and with his colleagues at Agudath Israel who afforded him the opportunity to work on their behalf from 2008 to 2011.
Rabbi Pruzansky thanked Dr. Simcha Katz, president of the OU; Rabbi Steven Weil, executive vice-president of the OU; Yehuda Neuberger, chairman of the OU/IPA, and Nathan Diament, director of the OU/IPA, for offering him this position.
