FIRST REPORT: YWN has just confirmed that Yeshiva Tiferes Yisroel (Flatbush branch of Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim) in Flatbush has been closed due to one confirmed case of Swine Flu. The Yeshiva is located at 1271 East 31st Street in Flatbush.
The entire Yeshiva (Elementary, High School & Bais Medrash) will be closed until after Shavuos.
This is the second Yeshiva that has been closed due to the recent Swine Flue outbreak. Last evening YWN reported the closure of Yeshiva Magen David, which will remain closed until the Monday following Shavuos (June 1).
There are still rumors regarding an additional Yeshiva being closed in Flatbush – and YWN will bring you that info as soon as it’s confirmed.
