Abraham Lincoln School / Philosophy Day School religious philosophy, New York City, NY

From Hinduism Today (www.hinduismtoday.com) an online newspaper, April 1995:

On behalf of the Abraham Lincoln School, located in New York City, I would like to thank you for your coverage of the activities of the St. James School [January ’95]. Our school, which opened its doors in September 1994, is closely affiliated with the St. James School in London, following a similar model and applying the guidance of both the St. James faculties and of the Shankaracharya. Like the St. James School we offer our student body the best education has to offer, combining it with the “deep spirituality” that you so accurately attribute to that institution. This includes the study of Vedic mathematics and basic Sanskrit as part of the regular curriculum, as well as prayer from various traditions, East and West.

Barry Steingard, Chairman of Board of Trustees, Abraham Lincoln School, New York, NY, USA
