Lakewood Mesivta Defies Mandatory Shutdown, Remains Open With 150 Students


LAKEWOOD (VINnews) — Not all Yeshivos have followed the mandatory guidelines to close their Yeshivos. At least one Yeshiva in Lakewood has 150 students sitting and learning, defying all instructions from doctors and local, state, and federal officials.

The students of Mesivta of Lakewood, under direct guidance of their Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Yosef (Yossel) Burstein, are learning and sleeping in the building, in complete disregard of the ongoing global health crisis.

As the Coronavirus continues to spread around Lakewood, this poses a grave danger to the students, their families and all who come in contact with them.

VINnews has learned that there are also suspected cases in the Yeshiva itself.

VINnews notes that according to all rabbinical rulings, it is incumbent upon all to report the Yeshiva, as this poses a very real danger to many lives.
