Dear fellow brother,
I was shocked and horrified when I found out that my sons camp is paying their Rebbeim the same salary as they were 35 years ago. After doing a little research it seems that it’s not only my sons camp. IT’S MOST CAMPS!
Why is it that camp tuition has gone up over 50% in the last 35 years due to inflation and other factors but yet the rebbeims salary has stayed the same $3000? That means based on inflation, the rebbeim are getting paid a measly $1400 (compared with 1985). And yes there are benefits, but let’s admit, every job gives some benefits.
I HAVE TO ADMIT I AM DEEPLY EMBARRASSED & ASHAMED.
These Rebbeim have given their lives for OUR children. These rebbeim are malochim. To sit with children for 3, 4, 5, 6 hours a day, you need the patience of a saint, and yet they give over so much with love and dedication.
LET’S STAND UP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Call your camp director. Call your local Rov. Call Torah Umesorah, The Agudah, Chasdei Lev…..
THE WORLD STANDS ON THE TORAH OF TINOKOS SHEL BEIS RABBAN!!!! LETS STRENGTHEN IT!!!!
