As a British & Canadian Jew whose very old and renowned religious ancestry lies in both Sephardi and Ashekenazi roots, I am sickened by the racist attitude of the Ashkenazim who portray Sephardim as second class citizens. I have been enriched by both sides of my family, and they both taught me respect for all people! The parents of the 70 Ashkenazi students of the Beit Yaakov school should be ashamed of themselves. It is they who are a bad influence on their own children by teaching them how to be racist, and how to hate. Schools are a melting pot...just like the IDF !! What better education than to learn first hand of the rich diversity that is the makeup of our people?!!! The Ashkenazi parents should be fined and even sent to prison for keeping their children out of school. SHAME ON THEM!!! They make me sick!
