Emmanuel case: High Court approves independent school

The High Court of Justice approved a request by the Education Ministry on Tuesday to open an independent educational establishment for girls studying in an Emmanuel school's Hassidic program. The school will not be funded by the State.
The children of the “Hassidic stream” who were enrolled last year in the mixed Asheknazi- Sephardi Beit Ya’acov girls school in the haredi town of Emmanuel will be allowed to study in a separate school meant to preserve the religious strictures and customs observed by their parents, disciples of the Slonim rebbe.
