Los Angeles Jewish Day Schools Hurting Financially

They all seem to be running deficits of at least $1 million and all are making budgetary cutbacks.

Because of the economic downturn, parents in Beverly Hills in particular are pulling their kids out of Jewish day schools and sending them to public schools.

How come Jewish day schools cost three times as much as Catholic schools? Because nuns work more inexpensively?

There’s a big report coming out this fall on American Jewish day schools. Is the current model sustainable?

Several police detectives showed up on Canfield (in zip code 90035) last week, wanting to talk to a male member of Anshe Emes. The guy then disappeared for a week. I don’t know the full story.
