After a long day of many rumors including a fake twitter post from Mayor deBlasio it is now official, Yeshiva Darchei Torah will not have in person classes until after Rosh Hashana.

Official statement from Rabbi Bender:

Dear Parents,

It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you that the Yeshiva will be closed for in-person learning for the next several days.

As a result of our discussions with the Department of Health, we will be closing the Yeshiva for several days while they conduct their investigation of the COVID-19 cases at the Yeshiva.

The Health Department officials are currently in our building and have begun discussions with our safety committee. We have offered our continued full cooperation and transparency.

Beginning tomorrow morning your sons’ distinguished rabbeim and teachers will be conducting their classes via our KZoom system and teleconferencing (depending on the grade). Our efforts at setting up the KZoom system are in full swing but, due to the short notice, might not be fully implemented across all grades in time for tomorrow morning. We appreciate your patience as we go through this nisayon together.

Rosh Hashana is coming, a day when we declare Hashem’s Kingship over the universe.

Let us put our faith in Him, and Him alone. Ein od milvado.

He wants us to stay strong and to keep learning and teaching his holy Torah.

While the closure of the Yeshiva is a very bitter bill to swallow, I know that it will not last forever.

Rabbi Yaakov Bender
