Thank you Richard Allen for keeping us in the loop. By our letter writing, sending out emails, using social media etc. we B"H were successful to help the Rachmuth Family face their bullies head on. This gave them the inner strength to stand up for Israel and not cave into submission by those who punitively were out to discredit the Rachmuth's. The Rachmuth's were targeted because they exposed Lerner's anti Israel, pro BDS support that was embedded in their institution, their staff and curriculum. Being that Lerner is a Jewish Institution they probably thought they could get away with it beyond reproach. Sadly to say, as we see with Bernie Sanders and Simone Zimmerman his latest Jewish Liason, being Jewish does not necessarily translate into being Pro Israel and pro Jewish. Sometimes Jews are useful idiots for our enemies with short term gains and long term betrayal to their people.
May we continue to build on this victory to fight the next anti Israel BDS battle :
This leads us to a discussion to a current battle between Brooklyn Park Slope Food Coop and 4 of its long standing members recently suspended by the Park Slope DC (Disciplinary Committee) because they dared to disrupt a false, offensive, anti-semitic and anti-Zionist BDS presentation at the Park Slope General Meeting on April, 2015.

Reply-To: Sloan Rachmuth
We are pleased that public pressure has finally forced the Lerner school's hand in dismissing their meritless lawsuit against our family. After we found, to our astonishment and horror, that the only Jewish school in a 50 mile radius employed professional and prolific anti-Israel BDS activists as teachers and administrators, the school initiated what amounts to legal bullying as part of a larger coordinated attempt to silence our speech about legitimate concerns of anti-Semitic tendencies of Lerner school teachers and administrators.While they'll try to claim otherwise, the countless internal documents from the school and supporters clearly state their intent to harm our family, legally and otherwise.Over the past 638 days (or 21 months) we were subjected to a clear attempt to intimidate, smear, and stifle our ability to express legitimate concerns about anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic activities by people associated with the school. The allegations and the strategy behind bringing the suit were carefully calibrated to defame and harass our family into submission. School administrators and their supporters repeated slanderous claims that we were liars, bigots, and scofflaws in every forum on a continuous basis. As such, we have been incorrectly portrayed as villains who want to destroy an innocent school and have become object of scorn in the community where we run a business and raise our children.The strategy failed to silence us and crush our spirit has failed.
We have leaned on our families and friends in the broader global Jewish community who have ardently stood by our side against during this attack. We were not silenced into submission, and we are not finished defending our family against the anti-semitic and defamatory tactics of this BDS movement here in Durham, North Carolina.
