ANOTHER CLOSURE: Torah Academy for Girls Shut Down by Department of Health, Read Letter


All divisions of Torah Academy for Girls, TAG, were shut down late Wednesday evening by the Department of Health. The entire school will be moving over to Zoom classes at this time until further notice.


Dear TAG Parents,

At 9:30 this evening, we received a phone call from the NYC Department of Health ordering that the school be closed effective immediately. We have not been provided with any specific details as relates to the reasons, causes or duration of the closure. We anticipate a meeting with the DOH tomorrow morning at which we hope to receive additional information which we will share with you.

We apologize for this late notification; however, we were given no warning that this closure was pending. Indeed, as you all know, TAG COVID policies met and exceeded all published State and CDC Guidelines.

Please note: Other than the classes that had already been quarantined, we HAVE NOT been instructed to quarantine other students.

Unfortunately, as we all know, everything is in the hands of Hakadosh Boruch Hu and our ability to remain open is no different. Rest assured we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure our continued strict compliance with all rules and laws and the health, safety and happiness of our talmidos.

We will provide more details tomorrow, in the meantime, please keep an eye out for ZOOM instructions for classes tomorrow and through Succos, We will work through the night to ensure a seamless transition for every girl in the morning.

More details regarding a transition to ZOOM will be forthcoming. Please keep an eye out for those emails.

I can only end with a request that each parent continue to daven and beseech Hakadosh Boruch Hu to bring an end to this difficult tekufah and I thank all of you for your continued support and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me, R’ Moshe Zimberg or any of our wonderful principals and administrators.


Rabbi Meyer Weitman
