  • Bais Rivkah Starting Soon?

    As the schools in Crown Heights have already started over a week ago, Associated Bais Rivkah Schools of Crown Heights has yet to open their doors to the students.

    As previously reported, the reason is due to a lack of funds and high debt in payroll.

    This scenario of Bais Rivkah not being able to open after a break from the school year, has been a rather common phenomena over the past few years. Whether it is after Chanukah break, Pesach break, or summer vacation, a letter is commonly sent out to the parents and teachers, regarding a delay in the resumption of school.

    This time it seems to be going on a little longer than usual.

    A meeting was held last night for all the staff of Bais Rivkah, together with the board of directors, to inform everyone of the current situation.

    A few points from the meeting:

    1) A new board of directors has been legally installed. The members of the new board are Chairman Rabbi Avraham Shemtov, and members Mr. Ephraim Goldfein, Mr. Yerachmeal Jacobson, Mr. Dovid Junik, Mr. Yoseph Kazarnovsky, Mr. Itchik Orimland, Rabbi Moshe Pinson and Mr. Dovid Sputz.

    2) A new position has been created in the Beis Rivkah network. Chaim Botwinick will now lead as the “school CEO”. He has previous experience in successful fundraising and in the organization of large institutions.

    3) Once the school year begins, every two weeks the staff will be receiving their paychecks on a steady basis.

    4) As for owed salaries, the board will be slowly work on paying the debts over the course of the upcoming (current) school year.

    In addition, two letters were handed out to all the staff at the meeting. The first, clearly laid out the details of their new direction in this upcoming school year. The second, was given for each of the teachers to sign their decision as a response to the financial plan presented by the board of directors. The teachers were asked to circle one of the following three options:

    -I agree.

    -I do not agree, but under the circumstances I am ready to make a commitment to Bais Rivkah.

    -I do not agree, and I am therefore unable to continue working in Bais Rivkah.

    Attached are pictures of the two letters:

    1. The line that is the funniest/ saddest is “Shemtov takes responsibility”. I wouldn’t take that to the bank.
