Lubavitch primary wins state funding

A third Lubavitch school has succeeded in securing voluntary-aided status, allowing most of its tuition costs to be met by the state.

The Lubavitch House boys’ primary in Stamford Hill will receive state funding from July, closely following the Chasidic movement’s senior girls’ school, which went state-aided this month.

Its primary girls’ school has been voluntary-aided for eight years.

Chabad Lubavitch chief executive Rabbi Bentzi Sudak said the award was “truly a watershed moment for us. It’s no secret that, over the last few years, we have been fighting for the financial security to continue our work in communities, schools, campuses across the country.

“This funding means that we have won that fight.”
