“Two teachers have been removed from a Los Angeles area charter school located at a synagogue after teaching a lesson to first graders about ‘genocide in Palestine,’ according to school officials. The teachers were ousted from the classroom — but not fired — from the Citizens of the World Charter School, which has classrooms at Adat Ari El Synagogue in the San Fernando Valley, KTLA reported. Senior Rabbi Brian Schuldenfrei told reporters at a press conference on Friday that tensions at the school first emerged after ‘certain teachers’ reached out to the school’s principal about Israeli flags hoisted around campus following Hamas’[s] Oct. 7 surprise attack on Israel.” (11/09/23)
