Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side is a neighborhood of towering rents, but the Orthodox Ramaz School is using 18,000 square feet of Reform Temple Emanu-El’s space for a cool $1 for two months.

Homeless after the July 11 fire in the 85th Street building that houses both Ramaz and its parent synagogue, Kehilath Jeshurun, the school’s first through fourth graders will study through October in the classrooms normally occupied by Temple Emanu-El’s afternoon Hebrew School, in the synagogue building at 65th Street and Fifth Avenue.
