   WHEN MY GRANDFATHER LIVED  WARSAW POLAND CIRCA 1893, THE JEWS THEN DIDN’T HAVE  A POT TO…LET ALONE SUPPORT A RABBI. THE RABBI WAS FROM A WEALTHY OR MIDDLE CLASS MERCHANT FAMILY AND WAS NOT ONLY ABLE TO GO TO  GRADE SCHOOL BUT TAKE  THE EDUCATION ALL THE WAY ONTO COLLEGE, WHERE AS THE AVERAGE JEW IN THOSE TIMES  HAD TO LEARN A TRADE AT AN EARLY AGE AND HAD TO GO TO WORK IN ADDITION TO  HIS LEARNING A TRADE AND NOT ONLY COULDN’T AFFORD THE COST OF SECONDARY EDUCATION , IT WAS PARAMOUNT THAT THEY BROUGHT INCOME INTO THE HOUSEHOLD.
WHEN A RABBI RECEIVED HIS  RABBINICAL DEGREE HE WAS BASICALLY SELF SUPPORTING.HE LIVED OFF BOTH HIS AND HIS FAMILIES FUNDS. THIS WAS THE WAY IT WAS IM AMERICA WHEN JEWS  CAME TO AMERICA CIRCA 1870″S TO WORLD WAR 11’s.
SOMEWHEFE ALONG THE LINE THE RABBIS GOT THE SMART IDEA THAT THE CONGREGATION SHOULD PAY DEARLY FOR THEIR  SERVICE SO TO SPEAK . A HOUSE OR APT MUST BE BOUGHT AND PAID  FOR THEM AS WELL.
IN ADDITION A HUGE SIX FIGURE  SALARY AND ALL EXSPENCES ARE PAID BY THE CONGRGATION  HAS NOW BECAME  A GREAT BURDEN ON MANY TO SEND THEIR KID TO HEBREW SCHOOL FOR A JEWISH EDUCATION . THIS MUST BE ADDRESSED BEFORE ITS TO LATE. YES AND IT’S AFFECTING ALL THE ENTIRE JEWISH COMMUNITY ALL ACROSS THE NATION

Egyptians and Syrians getting the shaft , where is the outcry from the U.N. General Assembly  or the European Heads of state ? There is none, When Israel farts on the West bank you hear an  Internationale uproar,now in Syria &  Egypt you hear none . while scores of people are being butchered wholesale. What is in order is  A Naval Blockade for Syria and  a blockcade of the Suez Canal  letting no goods in or out of the country except medicine.

 For the  Army to instale Mubracks V.P. as head of state is  a slap in the face to those who put themselves at-risk  ever day to  have  democracy.end
