Why I didn't know this before now is an excellent question, but let it be made clear: Sometimes Stern makes absolutely awful decisions when determining whom to let go from their school or faculty. It is a shame and an outrage that the one woman in this school who is more learned than all the others, who knows how to teach Torah in a clear and systematic way, who fascinates, captivates and otherwise offers others the thrill of truly learning should not be rehired. This one woman taught me more Torah than all my other Judaic studies teachers combined, and in their idiocy, the administration did not realize that they had possession of a gem, and they allowed her to slip through their fingers. They should have fired other people on the Judaic studies faculty before letting her go!
