Tranquility Bay Warning...

Following up on "Why Is A Jewish Music Blogger Writing About Tranquility Bay?"

VOS IZ NEIAS has posted a letter signed by Rav Shmuel Kamenetzky, Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twersky, and Dr. David Pelcovitz.

The letter, which was also published on page 15 of the Jewish Press, thanks those "shtadlonim who gave of their time, effort, and money to save Yitzchok Meir (Isaac) from a non Jewish oriented reform facility."

They write:
"What has clearly emerged, is that the facilities such as Tranquility Bay, Jamaica is not a place for any Jewish child. We understand the need for all types of intervention to help our children, but Tranquility Bay SHOULD NOT be an option.
