In light of recent developments, Rav Aharon Schechter, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin and member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah, released the following message:
“Due to the uptick of Covid cases in our neighborhoods The Mayer’s office decided that unless there is an immediate visible change of cooperation in the community with
wearing masks in the streets they will have no choice but to close all mosdods, בתי מדרשים and non-essential businesses by this Tuesday.
“We have become a focused target by the press and they are monitoring us constantly, so please make sure that anyone from your family including children walking the streets should wear a mask.
“Thank you for your understanding and may we hear yeshuos bekarov.”
