Its Jew vs. Jew again, this time in San Fancisco, this time over — wait for it – cellphone antennas!
A planned upgrade of cellphone antennas at the Bureau of Jewish Education has alarmed parents at the Lisa Kampner Hebrew Academy, the BJE’s neighbor, who have resolved to bring their concerns to the San Francisco Planning Commission.
Last spring, the BJE agreed to allow AT&T Wireless to increase the number of cellphone antennas on its roof, replacing the one that has been in place for 14 years at 639 14th Ave. The school is next door at 645 14th Ave….
“Parents are petrified,” said Rabbi Pinchas Lipner, the academy dean. “Under no condition do they want the antennas to go up, because they are scared for the safety of their children.”
By the way, did you hear about the wedding between two radio antennas? The reception was great.
