The PTA of the ORT school of Chatzor Haglilit is striking
against the school opposing the continued employment of a
teacher who did teshuvah. The teacher, a woman,
suddenly came to work dressed in a sheitel and a
modest dress, which apparently angered some of the parents.
"She's an excellent teacher, but her appearance doesn't suit
our school," said Shlomo Chadad, a member of the PTA.
The teacher herself was shocked by the reaction. She said
that she had tried to transfer to a religious school of her
own accord, but that there was no position available, and
therefore she had to continue teaching in the ORT school.
"Religious schools employ secular teachers, and no one
complains about this. I am surprised that in Chatzor, modest
dress is a problem for a teacher," she said.
The chairman of the Educational Department of Chatzor
Haglilit, Yoram Kamisa, said that he will make an effort to
solve the problem, and enable the teacher to continue to work
in the school.
