I’m sorry to say, I don’t have any Earth shattering advice. I could only say, my wife brought up our children partly by religious schools and partly by home schooling and thank G-d, KY”H, they all turned out very good adults. Sweden, I think you should reconsider your decision, now. I and my wife went to secular schools and I must say, although I never went to religious school full time, just to Hebrew school, bar mitzvah and then stopped. The school”s I went to were tough. Probably it did me some good, but in the long run, the memories… Read more »

ALL OF YOU WHO WANT TO GIVE UP
February 1, 2012 3:08 pm

I dont know how many of you know the namdars, but these things never stop them, theyve been fighting forever and WINNING. the key to their sucess isnt their carisma (as much as they have it ka”h) or their knowledge, it is completey because they are totally ibergegeben – devoted and given over to the rebbe. they know wand believe that the rebbe will help them and nothing will ever stop the rebbe from carrying out his holy work. do yourself, rabbi and mrs namdar who we all love and theur children AND THE REBBE, a huge favor, and donate… Read more »

As a parent of Shluchim in another european country
January 31, 2012 9:37 pm

I’m beginning to think some countries just aren’t possible any more. Sweden is one of the most anti-semitic countries (they were supposedly neutral in WW II but were not!) and it may just be time for the Namdars to either pack up & leave or send every child overseas. A terrible choice, I know. i’m afraid my grandchildren will soon face the same problem. Then what???

write to rebbe
January 31, 2012 9:32 pm

There’s a story where a situation very identical happened and someone there sent a pan to the Rebbe and the government allowed what was being held back.

Such a difficulty
January 31, 2012 8:42 pm

This is so hard…my cousins in Germany have the same difficulty. It’s crazy; they need to send their very young chidren (like five year olds etc) to learn at the Jewish school in a city four hours away, or else face jail. The kids basically have to sleep away from home every other night. Thank G-d, she has family in the other city, but it is still so crazy…

NO WAY!!!

What are they going to do ??
