    My dear friends please please remember , we are paying INSANE rent. HOW can we demand our YOUNG HARDWORKING MIDDLE CLASS COUPLES TO PAY EVEN MORE!! WE are the ones that dont get ANY benefits!!! EVery trip to the store costs at least a hundred dollars. ITS ALL CONNECTED!!! Stable rent will help people have a open hand towards tuition!!!

    Raffle ticket idea

    Raffle tickets sound nice in theory.
    But who will they call?
    Who will buy the tickets? Relatives?

    For Parents that are very poor and struggling to make ends meet, this could be very shameful and extremely stressful experience.

    Selling raffle tickets is a good idea if parents thought like businessmen and had businessman personalities ( but then maybe they’d be in buisness and doing well , and not needing to sell raffle tickets!)

    Looks very good,

    In the Seryan community all attendees would pre-wire 10K-25K to show up to event !! I’m affraidd no one has done that.

    Thank you! Raffle tickets?!

    Thank you! Raffle tickets?!

    Thank you to the new board for all they are doing. However I don’t think raffle tickets is the solution. First of all its embarrassing. Second of all, its once again shoving the tuition back into the parents court. Third of all, its petty cash. We need to learn from Boro Park etc. Their Yeshivos charge low tuition & they do not shove it back into the parent’s court. Rather they have set up a proffessional fundraising apparatus. They have a number of fundraisers. In other heimishe kehillos the mosdos don’t pressure the parents as much. They understand that the… Read more »

    Same parents

    Same parents

    Amazing… All events feature exactly the same set of parents. Out of thousand girls in school…..always the same 25 people.

    Regardless, I respect the board for giving of their time, effort and money to stabilize the school and set it on a course of financial accountability and transparency which will help it function, grow and be what it really can.

    We all gain if they are successful.

    So many excuses
    Guest
    So many excuses

    They came up with an idea, I’m sure they have more but from all these articles there are so many excuses for why parents can’t possibly pay more, or how ludicrous it is to volunteer or ask for someone to buy a raffle ticket! I’m a bt who was raised by a single mother. Us not going to public school was so important she managed to work 50 hour weeks plus commuting in California is so much time in itself. We were always reminded the importance of this act, because our Jewish education mattered. Mind you she was paying 15k… Read more »

    Where are the women? An all-girls school and not ONE woman on the board? Ridiculous.

    thank you to the board

    Im sick of the commenst above complaining about no women….always same parenst bla bla bla!!! Maybe its because its ALWAYS the SAME parents volunteering and getting involved. Thank you to the board for all your hard work and i hope you continue in your success and prove all the naysayers wrong. I have faith in you and commend you for getting into this difficult mess…not sure i would be able to.

    Selling Raffle Tickets?
    Guest
    Selling Raffle Tickets?

    It is demeaning to a parent who is busy raising a family and working to be ordered to sell raffle tickets after their exhausting days. Political advocacy for tax dollar funding for parochial school education is what the Rebbe wanted.

    instead or besides raffle program

    why not have a chinese auction?
    I mean bais rivkah hasnt really done any actual fundraisers since it was started, no dinners or auctions or things like that.

    Rebbe's Mossad

    For all those complaining why women were not invited,please keep in mind two things. 1. The board members are all male. 2. Mingling between men and women is assur. Remember that Bais Rivkah is the Rebbe’s Mossad! Thank you to all the Board Members who are working to save our Mossad. As long as you remember who you are working for, I am sure you will be successful. Moshiach Now!

    You hit the nail on the head !!
    Your comment is 1000% correct
    Through -the -roof rent prices is not allowing us to pay
    Tuition (and other important expenses) properly !!!

    Dear Board Members,
    Guest
    Dear Board Members,

    Oholei Torah, Lubavitcher Yeshiva and Bnos Menachem all have substantial funds coming in from renting their halls.

    Bais Rivkah does not.

    Why? Lack of sufficient air conditioning.

    Dear Board Members – please invest in bringing the hall up to par, and you will see an easy half million dollars a year ROI [return on investment].

    An added benefit will be the availability of more simcha spots in CH.
