Would Beth Medrash Govoha (BMG) of Lakewood, NJ, admit a non-Jewish student? Most of you would think I am nuts to even be asking the question. But the New Jersey Star Ledger reports that according to “Moshe Gleiberman, vice president of administration at Beth Medrash Govoha …… there is no “religious test” for admission.”
Of course we all know this is a lie. No gentile, not even one who could learn with the best of them, will ever be admitted to BMG. But this lie is necessary for BMG to qualify for 10.6 million dollars in NJ public funding for buildings. If they discriminate on the basis of religion they are not qualified for the funds.
I have a question for my readers. Do you think it is OK for Gleiberman to lie this way to get money for BMG?
