The Jewish people have faced many ..., 27 June 2008 [cached]
The Jewish people have faced many hazards to their continuity over the generations, but today we must confront a danger that is choking off the very core of our values, threatening to uproot and decimate families, say some parents and community leaders."The greatest existential threat to Jewish survival, the Amalek of Jewish survival, is yeshiva day school tuition in the galus," declared George Hanus, Chicago's Superfund chairman. "There is a crisis of funding Jewish education."
In addition to his position as chairman of Superfund, Hanus is chairman of the Jewish Education Leadership Institute at Loyola University, chairman emeritus of Ida Crown Jewish Academy in Chicago and chairman of Operation Jewish Education -- the five percent mandate.
"The current structure of funding the schools is destroying the Jewish people," explained Hanus. "The reality is that there are approximately one million Jewish children in galus; only 20 percent are in day schools and yeshivas. Eighty percent will never ever learn a posuk of chumash. The cost of $15,000 after taxes is preventing anybody who is not frum from birth or rich from learning a posuk of chumash."
"Every Jew has the responsiblility, the chiyuv, to give five percent of their will to any endowment fund they want," asserted Hanus.
