Rabbi Chaim Schwartz is a vital part of the Boston community. Through his tireless work with the Va\'ad he has earned the confidence and respect of the entire Greater Boston Jewish community. Rabbi Schwartz was recently offered a position in New York which would triple his current salary. Rabbi Schwartz and his family have expressed their desire to stay in Boston. He approached the Va\'ad and asked for a very reasonable and modest pay increase - much less than he was offered in NY, but the Va\'ad declined to meet his offer. If you believe that Rabbi Schwartz brings energy and vitality to our community, and that he is an invaluable asset to us all, please make your voice heard by signing this petition, and by sending it to all your friends. We ask the Va\'ad to pay Rabbi Schwartz a living wage, in order to allow him to continue his avodas hakodesh on our behalf. We will deliver the signatures to the Va\'ad by June 15, 2007. Thank you!
