“R’ Schwartz* invites all to a Kiddush in the Shul in honor of the big, big Simcha,” the Gabbai in a local Shul announced this past Shabbos after Davening. But it wasn’t in honor of a birth, or a Bar Mitzvah – it was in honor of the ‘Ba’al Simcha’ getting his child into a local Mosad.
Since Pesach, approximately eight months ago, the parents of this child have been given the run-around by several different Mosdos, the father – a businessman – relates to TLS.
The father says the child was told by several Mosdos and Askonim to ‘sit tight’, but it turns out, says the father, that his child was just used as a bargaining chip – at best.
But several weeks ago, the parents of the child tried one more school, a newer school, where the father says they were warmly welcomed with open arms.
The father at the Kiddush publicly thanked those Askonim who assisted thoughout their horrifying ordeal. [TLS]
