Yehud Residents Rail Against 'Scientology School' - 2011-09-14
A school identified with the Scientology movement that was booted out of Holon last year is moving to a new location - Yehud, says anti-missionary organization Yad L'achim - to the consternation of religious and secular Jews in the town. A fracas broke out last week during a special meeting of the Yehud City Council on whether or not to allow the school to settle in town, with dozens of residents very loudly making their objections clear, Yad L'achim said.
Even worse, say opponents, the Atid school, organized several years ago by parents from the Tel Aviv Scientology community to provide education to their children based on the teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, has now been recognized by the Education Ministry. The school is now considered an "unofficial recognized school," meaning that it is eligible for government funding and can award diplomas.
