Pay Back Time at ULY School
Lubavitcher Yeshiva teachers get paid thanks to 6 Crown Heights residents helping the school out of its financial woes.
Even as the U.S. economy remains in recession and many live within a restrained budget, a group of Crown Heights residents are showing that education is one area that should not be compromised.
A recently created advisory board for the United Lubavitcher Yeshiva is moving forward to help the boys school of 620 students on Crown Street with its financial burdens.
The committee is comprised of the following individuals: Itchik Orimland, Shmuel Brummel, Golan Ben Oni, Dovid Smetana and Shloime Feldman.
CrownHeights.CH has learned that their first point of business is to focus on making a dent in the back pay owed from the past few years to teachers of preschool to 8th grade.
They succeeded in raising part of the money, and Thursday were thrilled to pass it along to the teachers in time for the shopping-heavy Pesach holiday.
In addition to helping financially, the purpose of the committee is to focus on building expansion, growth and development.
A member of the school's administration has confirmed this information but didn't want to elaborate, describing the committee as "a work in progress. We have a long road ahead."
