With סעייתא דשמיא, the Kollel has reopened slowly at a limited capacity according to government guidelines. It is exciting and something we have all been waiting for. We have done a lot of planning and are trying to do our best to get everyone back into the Kollel safely. Each one of you is a valued member and supporter of the Kollel. There is no doubt in our mind that there are many ways to do this. Please give us the courtesy and respect as we are doing our best.
UPDATED: Please CAREFULLY read our plans until further updates. We will not jeopardize or compromise on the health guidelines.
If you are not commited to them please find a different place to daven.
