It's a complete joke when Jewish leaders bewail the drifting away from Judaism because of lack of Jewish education. I live in Boston a city with many Jewish schools but without wealth there is absolutely no way for my daughters to receive a Jewish education. As a struggling single mother on welfare NOT ONE day school was prepared to offer a scholarship. My daughters are supersmart (138 and 164 IQ) , athletic and artistic. They are at the top of their class in public school. They are growing up entirely ignorant of being Jewish, which they are 100% halachically!
