Yeshiva News: The Soille Hebrew Day School in San Diego is offering a ‘win-win proposition’ to the parents of students already enrolled in its school. If someone refers a family to the school and writes his or her name on the top of the application, the referral party receives a $500 tuition credit if the recommended family enrolls. It’s an unlimited opportunity, allowing the parents of the current student to receive as many $500 tuition credits as possible.
