Dini Freundlich’s daughter has been admonished for not wearing her uniform to class.

Freundlich’s daughter is one of 505 students enrolled in the Shluchim Online School, the first and only fully online Jewish day school in the world.

Rabbi Benyamin Kosofsky teaches from a computer screen in Crown Heights.
