Attorney Mr. Weinstock, spent the past seven years at Deloitte Tax, LLP, where he counseled Fortune 500 companies.
A resident of Passaic, NJ, Avrohom Weinstock attended Yeshiva Torah Temimah in Brooklyn, Yeshivas Toras Moshe in Eretz Yisroel, followed by Yeshiva Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin, and attended Brooklyn College and the Fordham University School of Law. He commenced his new position at Agudath Israel in November.
Agudath Israel’s Yeshiva Services Division, under the directorship of Mrs. Deborah Zachai, serves as a liaison between federal, state and local governments and the growing network of yeshivos and day schools in the tri-state area and across the country.
As explained by Mrs. Zachai, the Yeshiva Services Division disseminates vital information to the Orthodox Jewish school community about laws and regulations that are binding on the schools, as well as services and funding that are available to the schools. It represents and advocates on behalf of the yeshiva community in judicial, legislative and administrative arenas. Its staff fields hundreds of inquiries regarding government programs and legal mandates.
“We are extremely fortunate that a person of Avrohom Weinstock’s caliber has chosen to use his impressive skills in the service of Klal Yisroel,” commented Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, Agudath Israel’s executive vice president. “His keen legal mind, his strong yeshiva background, his ability to interact with people from all backgrounds — all of these qualities, and others, make him a natural fit for our Division of Yeshiva Services.”
As Mr. Weinstock assumes his new post, Agudath Israel bid warm to Dovid Tanenbaum, who retired. .
Tanenbaum developed a reputation as an expert in the field. He administered numerous programs for New York yeshivos, including the federally funded Safe and Drug Free Schools program and the state funded School Bus Grant program, and was at the forefront of advocacy on behalf of equitable security funding for nonpublic schools.
