It’s 1:22pm, Friday, 7-Shevat, Jan, 22 and I’m watch how my neighbor’s 10 year old daughter is helping her unload groceries from her car for Shabbos. What a wonderful girl. She helps her mother everyday the past 4 months. What’s wrong with this statement? Let’s try another: My sister runs a playgroup for 3 year olds. She tells me how she has two helpers. Two sisters, wonderful girls. Ages 7 and 11. What’s wrong with the story? The answer is, THEY BELONG IN SCHOOL!!! They, together with a handful of other girls, are still not in a school, after attempting to switch schools from the previous year. Parents of these girls have been turned away from many Mosdos here in Lakewood. Each school claiming they don’t have room or the child won’t fit in.
The parents have been working with so many wonderful Askanim and Rabbonim whom tirelessly are working so hard to negotiate with the mainstream schools, to no avail. They have turned to Hakadosh Baruch Hu in prayer. Mothers cry bitter tears while Benching Hadlakos Neiros. As of date, there is no education slated for these Neshamos in the near future. At least not from Lakewood.
You ask “why does Moshiach not come yet?”. Read above…
Editor’s note: TLS spoke with a school principal who said that as of today, all students have been placed. We then contacted the letter writer who said that all the children have been placed, with the exception of one child, who remians out of school.
