Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky ordered the opening of the ultra-Orthodox educational institutions for boys

Posted on Oct 17, 2020 by Ifi Reporter

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, one of the leaders of the ultra-Orthodox community, tonight (Saturday) ordered the opening of the ultra-Orthodox educational institutions for boys starting tomorrow. These are Talmudic Torah in which most students are over the age of six, in contrast to the guidelines that prohibit the opening of these institutions. The rabbi's entourage noted that he called for adherence to the rules of distance, masks and disinfection.
The rabbi's instruction was given last week, as first published in Walla! NEWS, but due to the efforts of rabbinical and political elements, the rabbi's directive has been suspended in an attempt to exhaust dialogue with the government and professionals on consensual opening.
Maj. Gen. Roni Noma, Corona's ultra-Orthodox projector on behalf of the Ministry of Health, was asked last week about the intention of ultra-Orthodox elements to allow the opening of elementary schools, contrary to guidelines, and said in response that professionals "do not see Torah studies opening in the coming days." Noma claimed that "we are asked to open - but we can not allow it." The director general of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Hezi Levy, said that the existence of studies in the ultra-Orthodox cities, which are mostly considered red, is a "danger," in his words.
In a consultation held by the rabbi on Sunday, after contracting in Korona himself, with senior members of the ultra-Orthodox education system, he said that the institutions called "Talmud Torah" should be opened as early as tomorrow (last Monday). However, he clarified that it is better to do so in agreement with the official establishment. The things were confirmed by people close to the rabbi.
The rabbi's remarks come a few days after the report on attempts to formulate an outline for opening some of the ultra-Orthodox yeshivas next week, with the participation of ultra-Orthodox representatives, including politicians and local representatives, as well as senior officials in the Ministry of Health and the government.
