The Central Lubavitch Yeshiva at 770 reopened this week in 770’s main shul and the Kingston Avenue womens’ section, with limited participants and social distancing.
The yeshiva was not in 770 since the shul shut over two months ago in accordance with government regulations and rulings from local rabbonim. As the shul reopens for limited minyonim three times a day, the yeshiva also moved backed to its rightful place.
Due to current New York regulations, only 10 bochurim were allowed into the main shul, and another 10 were allowed in the Kingston Avenue womens’ section, which carries a different address, allowing a separate count.
The twenty bochurim were chosen by the hanhala of 770 yeshiva, based on a rotation. Pictures from inside 770 on Monday show the bochurim sitting far apart, with more than 6 feet in between each.
Sources tell Anash.org that the hanhala is also talking with Rabbi Moshe Meir Gluckowsky about options for reopening the 1414 dormitory in the coming days.
A morning shiur for married men was also restarted in 770. The shiur, given for decades by Reb Pinyeh Korf, was continued in his merit, with ten men in attendance by invitation.
