DOH Allows Yeshiva Darchei Torah to Reopen Wednesday, Sep 30th


Dear Parents,

We are pleased to report that we have just received written communication from the NYC Department of Health allowing the Yeshiva to reopen this Wednesday morning, September 30, Be’ezras Hashem.

[Tuesday, the day after Yom Kippur, will be a day of learning via kZoom and teleconference.]

We look forward to a full day of classes – limudei kodesh and general studies – in grades N-8 on Wednesday. On Thursday there will be a half-day/Friday schedule, followed by the Sukkos break.

Mesivta Chaim Shlomo, normally on Sukkos break, will instead have a special pre-Sukkos schedule on those days. (See below for details.)

We will be reinforcing and enhancing our already-robust safety protocols for all staff and talmidim. We will also be enforcing those rules, without exception. Please send your son(s) with masks each day – which they must wear on the bus, in carpools, at arrivals and dismissals, and the entire day in Yeshiva.

We appreciate the support and input of all the parents and board members who have reached out to us during this challenging time. We will continue to communicate regularly.

Please stay tuned for more details as they become available.

We daven to Hashem for continued Siyata Dishmaya and a yeshuah for all of Klal Yisrael.

Good Shabbos.

Far Rockaway,


  1. Dear rabbi bender, Please tell your talmidim that they must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose in the white shul,as per the rules of the shul. Thank you and a g’mar chasimah tovah

  2. I’m pretty sure that out of school, especially when school is closed, it is the parents responsibility to make sure their children are wearing masks. Schools are there to partner with parents in the chinuch of their children, not to take their place! Call the parents, not Rabbi Bender.

  3. My son is not a Darchei student. He’s not a Yeshiva boy. He’s a working boy who dresses Yeshivish. When he’s near other people he wears a mask. At his job he wears a mask all day. Today, Friday he was walking down an almost empty sidewalk, far from other people. A man started harassing him about not wearing a mask and yelling at him that he was causing a chilul Hashem. This behavior is outrageous. Even if it were not Aseres Yemai Teshuva. Enough already.
