Welcome Knishers

I want to welcome all the readers of The Knish that have come here after reading my farcical look at the ludicrous amounts of tuition we pay. It pains me to think that as many of the the Yeshivot we and our children (and maybe our parents) attended have been around for 10, 20, 30, or more years, and yet no one in their history ever considered setting up some sort of endowment to help curb costs.

It's a shanda that for all of the success of the schools we attended, and the work we've done, that many of us who could live like kings as gentiles with the salaries we make, will live check-to-check to send our kids to Yeshiva. While the wacky suggestion I make in my Knish article is a bit far-fetched, I hope that someone sometime soon will come up with a strategic plan, so that at least my kids won't have to worry about this.
