    Shluchim Fined for Giving Jewish Education

    A few years ago, a new law passed in Sweden, forbidding parents from homeschooling their children with the exception of extraordinary circumstances.  After an extensive legal battle and despite international outcry and condemnation, the Swedish Supreme Court did the unprecedented. The Namdar family was issued a fine of $67,000 • Full Story

    In 1991, Rabbi Alexander and Leah Namdar were sent by the Rebbe as Shluchim to establish Chabad of Sweden. Since then, they’ve had the opportunity to touch and enrich thousands of lives, raising their growing family in beautiful Gothenburg, Sweden.

    A few years ago, a new law passed in Sweden, forbidding parents from homeschooling their children with the exception of extraordinary circumstances.

    Religion and safety were not considered important. Even though the court noted that authorities were satisfied with the standard of education the children were receiving and contrary to EU law of human rights and religious freedom, they wanted to force the Namdar children to be sent to the local public schools.

    After an extensive legal battle and despite international outcry and condemnation, the Swedish Supreme Court did the unprecedented.

    The Namdar family was issued a fine of $67,000.
