"Dear Ms. Foster, Ms. Dohn, and Ms. Forester,

I am a Schechter alum ('91) who greatly valued my experience at the school.

I note with interest your recent letter about President Donald Trump's refugee policy, which was forwarded to me.

I do not recall any such communication when President Barack Obama suspended the influx of Iraqi refugees in 2011. Nor did the school issue a statement when President Obama shut the door on Cuban refugees -- to appease the anti-Israel Castro regime, no less -- a few weeks ago.

Nowhere in your statement do you even acknowledge the valid concern that the majority of Americans share about the possibility that Islamic terrorists could use the refugee program to infiltrate our country, as they have done in Europe. In many cases such terrorists target Jewish schools and institutions.

You mention International Holocaust Remembrance Day. I recently had the opportunity to make a private visit to the facility in Skokie that once housed Solomon Schechter when I was a student, and which is now a Muslim school. The vice principal was kind enough to show me around.

In front of the building, there are two identical trees. I asked her if she knew the story behind those trees. She did not.

I told her that when I was in the third grade, we planted those trees in a ceremony to honor two Righteous Gentiles who saved Jews in the Holocaust. She was glad to be informed, or perhaps reminded, of that history.

There is clearly more that the current leadership of Solomon Schechter can be doing to promote genuine interfaith dialogue and Holocaust awareness than making inaccurate, partisan statements that distort current events and abuse Jewish values for political purposes.

Kind regards,

Joel Pollak"


"Dear Ms. Foster, Ms. Dohn, and Ms. Forester,

I am a Schechter alum (1970) who greatly valued my experience at the school. I am very disappointed in your response to the president's order on immigration. You view violates Jewish law in 3 ways at least.
The 3 SINS in Judaism of Opposing Trump’s temporary travel ban. https://www.facebook.com/JonathanGinsb/videos/10154762564565837/

1. Sacanat nefashote: reckless endangerment of society’s safety. Derived from “Make a fence around your roof, so that you won’t bring bloodshed upon your house if someone falls.” (Deuteronomy 22:8) Maimonides says a person that creates a hazardous situation is responsible for any harm that occurs. DO YOU DENY THE HAVOC AND DANGER these "refugees" have brought to Europe" DO YOU DENY Isis has successfully infiltrated the refugees there and here? DO YOU DENY Isis claims that they will send terrorists here with the refugees?

2. Not to remove landmarks (property boundaries) (Deut. 19:14) WE HARM the refugees. We bring them to alien culture to which they will not adapt, instead of resettling them in culture where they can adapt and be safe. Overwhelming majority wants to live in a shariah society, which is antithetical to USA. Suddenly, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi have signed on, in a conversation with President Trump, to start to accept Syrian refugees.Being Tough works, moron Democratic Snowflakes.
3. Avoid Hypocrisy Rabbi Soloveitchik says that the source for the prohibition of hypocrisy is Numbers 33/35 ולא תחניפו את הארץ. He then says that the Rambam derives it from from Yeshaya 66/17 (הפטרה for shabbos rosh chodesh) people who publicly look pious and privately eat swine - אוכלי בשר החזיר השקץ והעכבורו.. Crybaby/ HYPOCRITE Sen. Chuck Schumer, the nation’s leading Democrat and all the other “refugee” protesters sponsored by Nazi lover George Soros, hypocritically protesting this immigration review, which is another in a long line of Democratic Presidential temporary bans (including by Carter and Obama) on immigrants for security purposes, during a press gaggle in November of 2015, Senator Schumer told reporters himself that a temporary "pause" on refugees "may be necessary". Obama banned Iraqi immigrants for 6 months in 2011, in fact he used the same provision five other times, one more in 2011, twice in 2012 and twice in 2014
