YIDDISH ADS ON SCHOOL BUSES

Two cash-starved schools in the Borough Park area have allowed a religious textbook publisher to turn their yellow buses into mobile billboards.

The banner, which appears on the sides of nine buses, shows a smiling boy holding a religious book called a Chumash. The Yiddish caption, referring to the publisher, reads: "Everyone goes to school with Oz V'Hadar."

Chumash is another name for the Torah - a bedrock of Judaism and one of the first texts taught at a yeshiva. The ad hawks an updated and illustrated edition.

The Borough Park schools - Chasan Sofer and Yeshiva Yagdil Torah - are private with about 400 students each. More yeshivas may follow suit.
