The Zionist Orthodox hesder yeshiva in the Israeli port city of Akko was closed for safety reasons Monday, Yeshiva World reported.
The yeshiva building is too unsafe for use and poses immediate “life-threatening” danger to students, an inspector told the media.
The fire department has worked with the yeshiva’s administration for a number of years to correct code violations without success.
“The yeshiva does not have an occupancy permit and Zevulun District Fire Chief Chezi Levi worked for years to get the administration to correct violations which has not been done, hence his recommendation to issue the closure order,” the inspector reportedly said.
