Married and Navigating Jewish Life

Blogging about marriage and relationships

What do you call replacing the public bus drivers with Jews, allowing them to get the public salary, and then telling the parents of all the kids in the school to pay $5 to $10 dollars more each month to help pay for the bus drivers?

We call it Lakewood.

Can read where we got our info fromLakewood Kollel Wife

This is absolutely disgusting in our opinion that the Rabbis in Lakewood could actually be trying to get this done and its going to become a great Chillul Hashem. These Non-Jewish Bus Drivers are employed in the end by the city to provide public busing of children to and from school. They are not teaching them, they have no true influence upon them, yet it would seem that since there might be a problem lets push the goyim to the side and have Jews be the drivers. Since these Jews are being such tzadikim and becoming bus drivers, beyond the salary they would get from the city/state for driving we’ll give them extra money and make the parents pay!

It’s a shame that we have to rely on the goyim to stop this and not rely on the Rabbis to stop what can only be considered immoral, illegal, and a total chilul Hashem.

  1. IANAL, but I have the feeling that this is majorly illegal. Does anyone else think this kind of crazyness is going to go on until rabbis start going to jail.

  2. I have seen some of these bus drivers up close and they are usualy decent people but occassionaly they are low lifes.The question is,what is the percentage of low lifes in the frum community by comparison?I suspect it is much smaller,and I would prefer a torah observant jew driving my kids.Its pure statistics for me.Is it an affront to goyim? Absolutely! Will not doing this make them like us more? Of course not! So,when it comes to my kids I dont care what they think!
