The Rebbe would avert a strike.
As it has happened already. The Rebbe told Rabbi
Chadakov to pay all the teachers to make sure there is no strike.
Now after 3 Tammuz the teachers are left to fend for themselves.

Strike was needed in this case

All the teachers who didn’t strike should thank the teachers that did ! For if not for them none of them would see a change or they’re paychecks ! Sometimes when things are out of. Ontrol there’s gotta be a strong stand to make change !! The rebbe would be furious knowing teachers are owed so much money .. kol hakovod to the teachers who striked! They stood up fr has right for themselves the school and the students ! And thanks to the new board for stepping up to the plate and saving bais rivkah!!

I think the Rebbe would be upset about people telling half a story talking without knowing the facts.

Thank g-d

Thanks to the new board a fine young group of men who have steeped up to take control of the school. I’m sure better times are coming to bais rivka. The rebbe is smiling on each one of you. Stay strong and be matzliach.

Do you think the right thing for you is to is to share your opinion aftet the strike is over, or would it of been more appropriate for you to reach out to the teachers when the strike was still going, at that point you could of made a difference. Now you are just speaking rechilus. Side point, i think each one of us need to look at what we need to do. Perhaps the teachers shouldnt pf striked, but that is what the teachers shouldnt have done. You on the other hand should of reached out to see what… Read more »

About a month or two before this strike, there was another story on Collive about how Beis Rivka had a change in the way they were doing things and it looked promising like everything was going to be better.
But obviously, it did not get any better.
I hope G-d willing, this time you are right, and it finally will be a well functioning school where the girls can learn, and the teachers can get paid fully and on time.

Rabbi Jacobson was not sharing his opinion alone, but responding to the questions and issues many of us are struggling with. This is not just about this strike and its aftermath, but about our children and the trust in our institutions. As the questioner asked, how do we prevent this from happening again? And what do we tell out children who have been hurt by this?

Here they go again with “would the rebbe..?” how in the world do you know what the rebbe would do? and, if that’s your only criteria in making decisions, we have a problem because someone else will come along and say that HE knows what the rebbe WOULD have done/said/thought.

unfortunately the leadership in some institutions doesnt really care, or do. I think we need to know what to tell ourselves, and what we tell ourselves is what we tell our students children.
in this case as rabbi jacobson said we as a community need to see what we can do to help the situation.
kol hakavod to the board members and the many parent that stepped up and did something

Wondering if this strike has anything to do with the $300 million that NYS allocated to non public schools to pay for secular studies teachers.

Did they need to show necessity to obtain state funds?

The question should be

The question should be

“Would the Rebbe approve not paying the teachers?”
Don’t put it in the hard working dedicated teachers!!!
You got incompetent administrators who can’t seem to be able to do their jobs yet still pay themselves

agree with #15

agree with #15

why put the question on the teachers for striking. the question should be put to the administrators of the school “would the Rebbe approve (or even allow) the teachers not to be paid?”
