Beats a paper round...

An Orthodox shul in Milwaukee is offering students $150 bribes -- sorry, that is, "scholarships" -- to attend Friday night services, dinner and discussion.
“A few people have questioned it,” Lake Park Synagogue Rabbi Shlomo Levin said of the stipend. “One student actually told me he felt uncomfortable and would come even if there were no payment. I said, ‘You tell me what charity you want to donate it to.’”
Curiously, he neglects to mention how the student responded. I wonder why.
