BK Jewish school orders students to hit delete on Facebook
Leaders at an all-girls Jewish school in Brooklyn are not Facebook fans and are taking that dislike to another level by ordering students to hit delete on their accounts.
According to media sources, head administrator Rabbi Benzion Stock told students at the Beis Rivkah School in Crown Heights that they will face a $100 fine if they continue to use the online social site. Stock said there's a lack of privacy and dignity on Facebook that goes against the Jewish faith's teachings of modesty.
The issue has become controversial among parents and their daughters, but school officials insist it's a way to keep students safe. Stock says the students who were forced to pay $100 will get their money back at the end of the school year.
