Many are coming to the the home of HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita, with questions regarding the current situation and to hear what Da’as Torah is. The following was received from the house of HaRav Kanievsky, written by his son HaRav Yitzchok Shaul Kanievsky Shlita and reviewed and approved for publication by HaRav Chaim so that the tzibbur should know what to do and how to act.
-one may travel to Yeshiva and “one who keeps a mitzvah will know no harm
-try not to loiter around the Yeshiva [it will do no harm to hire a guard for the entranceway to the Yeshiva].
-also women who travel to work so that their husbands can sit and learn may do so and Hashem will watch over them.
-also to a simcha shel mitzvah one may travel, if it is necessary.
Psak of Maran HaRav Shteinman Shlita:
in response to a question posed by Yeshiva students from Chutz L’Aretz: given the current situation, should they return to Eretz Yisroel to learn or should they rather postpone travel until the tension eases?
The Rosh Yeshiva Shlita answered that they should return to their learning in Eretz Yisroel and in the merit of Torah study we will be saved from all difficulty.
