In explanation Of COLPA's work, Rabbi Daniel Greer wrote, shortly afterward: COLPA was formed in September 1965, by a group Of Orthodox Jewish lawyers and social scientists, to represent the Orthodox Jewish community on legislative and legal matters.


It is our policy to become involved only where substantial unity exists in the COLPA's members include Orthodox Jewish community. individuals from "limit to limit" Of Orthodoxy. This broad base is important to try to accurately represent community sentiments, for, an important consideration in COLPNs creation, is the avoidance of unnecessary duplication.


COLPN’s two major areas of concern since its formation have been that of government aid to parochial schools and equal employment opportunities for Sabbath observers," When Rabbi Daniel Greer was asked to join the original cohort of COLPA members he was an attorney at Simpson Thatcher & Bartlett.
