Doesn't seem that a resolution asking to `pause' for reconsideration should be necessary. Isn't it illegal to give taxpayer/public funds to any institution with a primarily religious purpose?? Not only is this clearly the case for the two religious schools mentioned, the yeshiva in Lakewood ignores funding eligibility in excluding anyone who is not male. Furthermore, the yeshiva's policy of encouraging an ever-growing number of young men to spend their lives devoted to all-consuming religious study without time for work results in increased demands for taxpayer-funded services and benefits.
