Despite the promise made by Rabbi Moshe Meir Gluckowsky, secretary of the administration of the central Yeshivah in 770, as we reported on Friday, Sunday morning arrived and 200 Bochurim still found the Yeshiva kitchen closed.
Not only that, but several hours later at lunchtime, 15 representatives of the Bochurim arrived to pick up meals for their peers, as per the agreement made between Gluckowsky and the Hanhola last night – but they, too, found themselves facing a locked door, with no food waiting for them – watch the video here.
It has been publicized in the name of R’ Shlomo Zarchi that this is an explicit breach of the agreement that was reached just last night, and he puts the full blame for the situation on Rabbi Gluckowsky, accusing him of “playing games.”
Rabbi Gluckowsky has responded to ChabadInfo’s request for comment, as follows:
The kitchen will be open tomorrow, Monday.
Unfortunately, the basic lists that the Bochurim was required to submit were not sent to the Yeshiva.
The only reason that we can finally open tomorrow is because of the great effort of Yosef Krugliak and Amos Cohen.
This is following what we have originally reported, that Rabbi Gluckowsky decided – on his own accord – to close the kitchen. And since last Sunday morning, the Bochurim haven’t received food from the Yeshivah.
Thursday, following pressure by the Hanhalah Ruchnis and many parents of students, a rumor circled in the name of Rabbi Shlomo Zarchi that the kitchen and dining room will reopen, and any Bochur registered in the Yeshiva in 770 will continue to receive meals from the kitchen.
