Posted on January 9, 2011 by Daniel Weinreb


For those returning to the States and concerned about how to pledge:

Pledge of Allegiance

English Version

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Yeshivish Translation

“I am meshabed myself, b’li neder, to hold shtark to the siman of the United States of America and to the medina which is gufa its tachlis; one festa chevra, b’ezras Hashem, echad ve’yuchid, with simcha and erlichkeit for the gantza oilam.”
