This Is The Future of The Children And The Nation

LET THE INGATHERING CONTINUE ...


Sephardic, Ashkenazi girls study together in harmony in Beit Yaakov School in Tel Zion
.

"The community is located near the West Bank city of Ramallah. These days, while we often hear of discrimination against members of the Ethiopian community and of haredi institutions restricting the number of Sephardic students, a place where Sephardic and Ashkenazi girls study together in harmony is a real beacon of light.

"It's a beautiful ingathering of the exiles. There's no difference between one person and another. The words Sephardic and Ashkenazi have been erased from our lexicon ... The only parameter in admitting children to schools or kindergartens is their religious level," says Rabbi David Azoulay, chairman of the community committee.
 
"I feel like part of something historic in the haredi public, a real model of life together," ... "There is a very high spiritual and educational level here, as well as huge education value the girls receive because of the friendship and interaction."

"My daughters learn different customs, different cultures, play with girls who speak Yiddish. It's enriching and fruitful. I'm proud to be living in such a place."


AND ON THE SIDE OF THE DIVIDE

Seminary refuses to admit Sephardic girls
Kol Hai Radio on Sunday aired a recording of a principal of a haredi high school for girls in Beitar Illit, complaining about the number of Sephardic students he must deal with: "Not every year (…) absolutely not. Are you aware of the amount of Sephardic girls? I can't, I just can't," the principal is heard saying."
