Following updated guidance and a day of discussion with our Rabbonim and Trustees it is with a heavy heart that we inform the Kehilla that we will be closing the building for all Minyanim and Shiurim with immediate effect. Current guidance also advises against holding private Minyanim in houses which would actually increase the rate of transmission.

Why not donate online to Ohr Yerushalayim?
