Agudath Israel of America salutes Assemblyman Dov Hikind who announced earlier today his impending retirement from the New York State Assembly after a long distinguished career of service to the community.
For 36 years, Dov has been a fierce advocate in government for individuals, his community, and all of Klal Yisroel. His heart overflows with love for the Jewish people, and his level of passion for important causes, including causes that might be unpopular but are just, is unparalleled. We have been proud to work with him on many important legislative accomplishments over the years.
Though he may be formally retiring from government, we know that Dov Hikind will never retire from serving the community in whatever capacity he is able.
