    Chovivei Torah Mesivta – Open.

    Bnos Menachem is closed anyway for midwinter break, so the only question is Wednesday.

    lol jk….. yes we need to be better safe then sorry. making things easier for us all.

    perhaps it may cause a difficulty with some parents who have no choice but to work, however its a responsible thing to do

    I am certain… the Rebbe would say something like,,,,, (obviously my personal thoughts)

    “Stay in, use the time for education and family unity, learn Torah whereas we cant go out any way.. use out this time wisely”

    Be safe… make the best of it….
