When Rabbi Menachem Levitansky arrived at a local high school to organize the weekly Jewish Club, he found the school in lockdown due to a bomb threat. He used the opportunity to help a fellow Jew put on Tefillin.
Every Thursday, Rabbi Menachem and Brochie Levitansky, co-directors of Cteen S. Monica, help organize the weekly Jewish Club at S. Monica High School.
This week, upon arrival at the high school they found the school surrounded by police cars. Within a few minutes, the whole block was closed off and the school was sheltered in place due to a bomb threat.
As the Levitansky’s waited to see if they would be allowed in any time soon, they used the opportunity to help a fellow Jew put on Tefillin.
After officers and school administrators swept the campus the school was cleared and no suspicious items were found. The lockdown was lifted and students were eventually dismissed for the day.
