    how you all complain when they open late “but the kids are ready,” and now you have a day notice you manage to complain about that… y not be happy that they figured out a way to start school…

    Its a valid reason to postpone the start and essentially cancel a useless orientation to publicize that teachers are behind on receiving payment, now business back to usual.

    You might not know, but there is a man named Rabbi Avraham Shemtov who has been working around the clock to raise the necessary funds. If more people in the neighorhood would prioritize properly and realize that the education of THEIR chuildren is important enough to support before the “import” of certain elements to our Shchuna, this might have been easier. Not commenting on the elements only on the priorities. Not sure how Rabbi Shemtov does it, but when you believe you are dedicated to the Rebbe’s inyonim no matter what, you have a different attitude and seyata desmaya. Maybe… Read more »

    Thanks for posting opening times.

    The papers I received in the mail had conflicting times.
    Thanks for clarifying.

    Chaim: So, how much did he have to pull together this time so that BR could open its doors?
    Yankel: About a million.
    Chaim: Problem is, it’s a “bottomless pit”.
    Yankel: Vos mit a mol “bottomless pit”? BR is a tower that B”H keeps on growing higher and higher… Do you feel it’s a “bottomless pit” every time you pay the grocery bill for your family? Rather than considering it to be a “bottomless pit”, I would say “It’s a song that doesn’t end”, B”H. Thank you to all those that helped open the doors this time around…

    thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In retrospect maybe it was worth the Tumul for pepole to be reminded that there is still a true chosid (rabbi shemtov) who feels the achrayus to cover the millions of dollars needed each year.

    Without being hindered by the fact that most pepole are thankless or even worse clueless with what he does .

    Besides for the fact that he single handed built a beauty full Builduing while we couldn’t get our act together and our kids were traviling to “gaza” to learn.

    We all owe a huge hakorois hatoiv to rabbi shemtov.

    And the CH leadership should aknowledge his hard work.

    This is a school that caters to a community whose families are encouraged to have large children and not have the means to support them. They also have a policy of “not turning anyone away”. Paying tuition should be a top priority for parents BUT knowing the above, the school should be doing EVERYTHING they can to FUNDRAISE. Why are there no dinners, alumni network, auctions, purim baskets, etc etc??
