To Menahalim, Mechanchim, Principals, Educators and all of Klal Yisrael.
There are too many yiddishe neshamos that are crying from deep pain. They are without a school, sitting at home while their peers were accepted to school. They were not accepted to no fault of their own. Is it their issue that Klal Yisroel is having politics regarding where one lives and in what area (Lakewood vs. Toms River, Boro Park vs. Flatbush) how much money the parents earn and where they daven?
A little child cannot defend themselves let alone fend for themselves.
Open your eyes, ears and hearts. Watch what is going on around you. These children are the future generation of Klal Yisroel. All people including children are made up of different qualities. We are all here to work on ourselves, as noone is perfect. Whose achrayus is it to say with these children chinuch habanim stops (we do not teach those)! We are proud to say we are the chosen nation. How are we the elite discriminating against our own? Ignoring this problem does not eliminate it. Were we not created as anashim rachmanim? Where is our rachmanus at this point? Also bayshanim. Where is our busha our embarrassment? Wouldn’t you rather be the school to boast “we are the school that can give each child what they need.” We are responsible to raise our children and teach them to respect their teachers, elders and the Torah. How hypocritical, when the team supposed to be helping to raise the next generation of yiddishe neshamos is only one-sided. The chinuch part is just directed for those who are considered better, richer and seemingly perfect.
Also, maybe it’s the fact that they are hiring inexperienced mechanim with methods and discipline that is too harsh or inappropriate. Our children are not growing up with proper role-models. How do we expect them to grow up as healthy, functioning adults and future parents.
We must not keep quiet, create the noise that will turn to change. This is not about money or prestige. This is about the real tears of my 7 year old sitting at home without a yeshiva. He feels alone and hopeless. He wants to be amongst his peers.
We hope that the change will come quickly before children like him without a place to learn will chas v’shalom be roaming the crime ridden streets.
Please hear the cries.
