ktonton, check your spelling.
I think it's healthy to be around like-mind people. If you don't like h.com, stick to posting on Student's blog, then.

What about the Chabad Day School I mentioned before?

does anyone have some good articles about the damage of co-ed schools?




FYI there is a Chabad Day School where the classes are mixed through 5th grade and the later grades is only mixed for English.

This is the only Chabad Day School the Lubavitcher Rebbe's wife ever visited.

It was founded by her father. They have been open close to 60 years now.
95% of their full time teachers are professionals.

Some of the classes have English in the mornings.

Again I will ask.

What was the Lubavitcher Rebbe's "shita" regarding co-ed schools?
Just curious.

Why would the name make difference?

There's a quote function; please use it if you wish to quote.
The Rebbe's shita was quoted here at the beginning of the thread here; it could not be more clear.
Perhaps in some cases exceptions were made in situations where insisting on segregation would have meant that no school would have existed at all. This does not change the fact that the Rebbe is unequivocally against it.
It's true that the name doesn't make a difference, but if it's a well-known fact already, you may as well say it so people will understand better. Also, they may want to verify it.

Even though he spoke about English in the afternoon, co-ed schools shouldn't exist. Nevertheless he kept this school under his leadership after the 1953 Lubavitch Yeshivah debacle.
Just Ironic.
This school also has the first Bais Chana Lubavitch girls High school.

I don't see the contradiction. The school didn't go against the Rebbe's instructions concerning that school, which was set up in a ver bedieved way so it could exist. Simple.

Are anash happy with the results?
[I am not happy discussing certain specific mosdos and places. But since this is where the conversation led - and we are bringing "proof" from anash that live there - I feel my question is a valid one].

"Best of both worlds"?! The best of the secular world of pritzus and kefira, you mean?!
Oh, and which so-called anash are "happy" with it--the "lite", modern types, of course! Because if they'd have even a bit of a hergesh of kedushas Yisroel, never mind knowledge of what poskim and the Rebbe say, they'd be most unhappy with it!

You do not know who you are talking about !!!!

The anash are actually happy with great education on all fronts.

I usually am not comfortable talking about specific mosdos either. But since it came up, and specifically since nobody is calling the school into question (it has the Rebbe's haskomo), perhaps we can learn from it: Why did the Rebbe allow the school to exist in apparent contradiction to his own teachings in other areas? There must be a good answer to this question, and nobody has suggested it yet.

I'm disgusted by the claim that so-called anash are "happy" with their children being in a mixed school or learning secular studies, R"l.

Meshulam, I already said that this must be a case in which otherwise no school would have existed. What's so complicated?

noah: I appreciate your ability to make assumptions, without actually having any information. Incidentally, I would have made a similar assumption.

However, you of all people should understand that this discussion should be based on facts, rather than assumptions (even if you really really really think you're right).

Let me ask the question differently: 1) Do all anash in the area send their children to that school? 2) Until what age do they send them, IOW, at what age do they send them elsewhere?

[Maybe someone knows someone from the New Haven area?]

No, Meshulam, I don't know the details of the school. But there were many bedieved things done all over the world in many areas. That doesn't change the Rebbe's words cited above that in any normal situation this type of education is against halocho, middos tovos, and (much less imp't in comparison) academic achievement.

[quote=Torah613;159276]Let me ask the question differently: 1) Do all anash in the area send their children to that school?

Besides 2 families which have changed this year.(To a non lubavitch school about 40-50 minutes away.)
Shluchim around the area send their own children.





2) Until what age do they send them, IOW, at what age do they send them elsewhere?


In general till (not including) 8th grade. Which by that time the teen usually goes to the Mesivta, out of town.

The girls generally stay in the girls high school.

If all what you are writing is true - it is a true Rebbeshe mayseh/moifis that everyone is happy...

Does anyone know a chassidishe yungerman from the New Haven area? Did a Cheder ever open up there (I think there was once talk of it)?

I live here.

In 92 there was talk of it, however nothing ever came of it.
