  1. Thank you for the link! I read about the UK survey regarding Jewish day schools. From my anecdotal experience, it seems obvious that in the U.S. the after school educations failed and the full day Jewish day schools have been more successful, although with plenty of flaws, in perpetuating Jewish community. Whether the day schools can continue as current will depend in part on the economy, as they have been extremely expensive to run.

    • You are welcome!
      In France, religious schools are not as dear to run as the state pays the teachers’ salaries and families pay for the rest. But with regard to the Jewish community, the problem is that there are very few Jewish schools outside Paris and the suburbs.

  2. Thank you for the link! I think I read about the mosque in another newspaper this week (but I can’t remember which one!). As always, it’s good to have a resource in one place where I can read articles of interest. Shabbat Shalom!
