Chabadinfo.com got reports that Morristown Yeshiva, from the original Yeshivas in America, located in New Jersey, possibly will not be opening next year or perhaps on a much smaller scale.
The Yeshiva was established over 70 years ago, however due to financial issues and the lack of registration in the past few years they may not be reopening next year.
Rabbi Herson, the director, wrote to his staff “Due to the circumstances in Tomchei Tmimim, I feel it is my responsibility at this point to advise everyone in Tomchei Tmimim that there is no guarantee of a position for you for next year”.
This caused many of the staff to get very worried about their future financial stability, Rabbi Herson continued and wrote “Follow your instinct and do what’s best for you now”.
Many of the staff are uncertain how to deal with this, numerous ones are looking for new positions so they can feel a little safer. For most staff it is very difficult, being that moving with a large family is not easy.
In addition, Rabbi Herson finishes off “Any existing health benefit will cease as of February 28, 2015. This situation is painful, but there is nothing further I can do at this point. We hope for the best”.
Update: The response ChabadInfo.com received from the Yeshiva: “Rabbinical College of America is not closing any of its departments”.
