Rav Shmuel David Hakohen Gross said that he had received a number of questions concerning payment to kindergarten teachers and morning babysitters.
His ruling which was publicized said:
“I was asked if those who left Ashdod will have to pay the wages of their teachers, kindergarten teachers or babysitters, especially since they are now paying for these services in the places they are now residing and don’t want to pay twice. Even though different details may affect the ruling, in general it appears that in many cases, they are obligated to pay at least part of the amount. One should not assume that they won’t have to pay.”
