How can we prevent the assimilation of Jewish children who are in public schools?
The question is, how can one prevent himself from drowning in the Atlantic Ocean. And the answer is, keep your feet dry. Anybody who wants to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean has to know that he’d better be a good swimmer. And children do not know how to swim against assimilation! So the only answer is not to go. If a Jewish child is enrolled in public school, then he’s enrolled in a top-notch course in assimilation, and the there’s very little you can do for him while he’s there.
