Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz speech at event in Lakewood (video)

I'd be surprised if you haven't seen this already. It was passed around yesterday so much, I think every jew must have seen it already.. just in case you have not yet seen it, I post it here...

Thank you, Mr. Rechnitz, for this great speech.

I like how he says "everything is right with Lakewood" while he is in the middle of a very harsh speech for their attitude and style of being frum and rejecting kids from school.

Will anything change? Is his opinion worth more just because he is rich and gives a lot of tzedaka? Rechnitz has been great because he is a mensch and because he has put his money where his mouth is - in this case he did not say he would withhold funds from institutions that do not change in this regard - but is that the only thing that might get them to change? Maybe they wouldn't change even then?

  1. He did also add that a reason he is able to voice his opinion is that he gets calls from parents everyday asking for his help.

    The question is are these kids really being rejected by every school like the parents (and Rechnitz) claim? Or are there schools available to these families, just they feel that the schools are "beneath" them (religiously, academically, etc) - which if thats the case is just a cruel game of chicken where their children are the victims, and now they are claiming its the schools fault. It might be the schools, but it also might be the parents.
