|R' Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss|
Years ago a Satmar boys school in Yerushaylim had all children registered in a school with a different name so that they could collect Zionist money!
Now a girls school under the auspices of the Eida Hachareidis, a fervent anti-Zionist organization, was caught taking Zionist money!
The ironic part is that the parents of this school pulled out their children from Bnos Rochel, 17 years ago because they took Zionist money (Chas Ve'sholom).
Now, R' Zalman Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe is fuming because he brought money to fund schools that refused to take Zionist money .... and now they were "double dipping!"
The truth is that no school can survive with the pittance of money that Satmar gives them...
The Zionist are and have been the biggest supporters of Torah in Jewish history and all the Mosdos know that and to survive they must take Zionist money .... if they cannot do it openly, they take it clandestinely.
The Chachmas Lev school for girls was established seventeen years ago after parents pulled their girls out of Bnos Rochel, learning the latter was accepting state funds. There is now a storm in the Eida community after it was learned Chachmas Lev has also accepting state funds all these years from the ‘Treif Zionist government’. -
The situation is such the Eida’s Education Committee was scheduled to meet on Sunday afternoon 27 Sivan but the meeting was pushed off a day to money. The rabbonim will discuss the breach in protocol, the acceptance of funding from the ‘Medina’.
According to reports, parents realized something was wrong when they saw Education Ministry officials visiting the school. While the principal is insisting he was unaware of the funding, parents are demanding the Eida Education Committee oust him from his post. The principal’s wife and brother-in-law appear to have made the arrangement with the ministry.
The school principal has been summoned to meet with Gavaad Eida Chareidis HaRav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss Shlita as well as will Rav Zelig Reuven Katzenelbogen of Torah V’Yirah.
