A Department of Education letter that calls out four Brooklyn Yeshivos for not allowing inspectors to their sites includes a question regarding United Lubavitcher Yeshiva. The letter, which deals specifically with high schools, mentions four Yeshivos in Boro Park and Williamsburg that have refused inspection.

The fifth yeshiva discussed in the letter is United Lubavitcher Yeshiva.

The letter first clarifies that the United Lubavitcher Yeshiva on Ocean Parkway has been registered and inspected by the DOE. Yet questions if that registration covers all the ULY sites, naming Chovevei Torah at 885 Eastern Parkway, and 770 Eastern Parkway as additional high schools.

There has been a large outcry by private schools of all religions against the increased regulation of schools by the DOE. Recently, a letter signed by most of the NYC Council called out the DOE for the new guidelines released. The guidelines required a combined span on seven hours dedicated to secular studies for high schoolers.

    Maybe it’s time for more home schooling.
    Or maybe it’s time to leave NYC.. I can just imagine the real estate plummeting in all the frum areas if this does take place.
    On line school is yet another option with after school social activities.

      The target is ULY Crown Street! Only middle schools are being scrutinized. Grades 5-8 ONLY!

    As a high school principal, i caution you to be very careful before considering the online schooling option, even with after school social activities. I’ve seen the results in tens of students, who never fully recoup the lack of proper socialization and opportunities to properly navigate the social scene in a healthy manner.

    good luck

      I assume this would only be as a last resort, if all chabad yeshivas were shut down by the DOE…

      Well I was on shlichus and my kids were homeschooled until aged 8-9… they were socialized just fine (they knew how to mix with all ages due to their shlichus) and the rebbes brochos… it’s not for everyone but…
      and they were way ahead of their peers when they joined a traditional school.
      Oh and their behaviour was much better when homeschooled.
      Please don’t tar us all with the same brush. Many shluchim do it

    ULY OP was inspected. They only inspected Hamesivta and were very impressed.
    Rabbi Lieblich is an amazing Menahel.

    Read Letter, It clearly says High School.
    HaMesivta is the only High School on Ocean Parkway.
