Shortly after being recruited to the Lerner School, a Jewish elementary school in Durham, NC, Guy and Sloan Rachmuth learned that the
school had hired or appointed several vigorous anti-Israel activists: a
teacher, a development director, and a board member.
These individuals openly and proudly work with such antisemitic and Israel-hating groups as Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the Boycott, Divest, Sanction (BDS) movement.
Outraged, the Rachmuths withdrew their children from the school. The school responded by suing them for breach of contract, a
suit which, was later revealed, was politically motivated by the
school’s determination to make an example of these vocal Israel-supporting Jews
as well as by their discriminatory disdain for the several Israeli families
attending the school.
The Rachmuths are determined
to fight for their principles, their children’s Jewish identity, the Jewish
people, and for the State of Israel. If they fail, then more “Jewish” day schools
will soon be preaching harm to, and the downfall of, the only Jewish state in
But Guy and Sloan can’t fight
this battle alone. They need our help. Please contribute a few dollars toward their legal expenses so they can fight this battle in defense of their principles, and in defense of Israel.
