pSTG6932051UPDATE: Torah Academy (TA) and Bais Yaakov have also been cancelled due to Police recommendation.

Here is the message from TA:

We have received credible intelligence  from law enforcement officials that there may be a threat in areas that could affect carpool routes.


The following text message was sent out from the administration at Cheder Chabad which is located right next to Northern Parkway. A rumor has been going viral on social media that there will be a ‘Purge’ or a another round of violent protests and one of the locations listed as a gathering point was Northern Parkway. Many Jewish institution are also in the vicinity and YWN is closely monetering the scene with on the ground reporters and live updates.

Here is the text that was sent out:

Cheder Chabad: Due to rumored uprising scheduled for this afternoon, Cheder will be closing at 2:00pm today for all classes.

CrownHeights.Info spoke with Cheder Chabad in Baltimore:

“This is being done as a precautionary move in light of rumors of unrest not far from the school,” said Rabbi Elchonon Lisbon, the Executive director of Cheder Chabad, “we just want to keep our kids safe.”

He added that “the situation is fluid, and we don’t know how this will affect school tomorrow. We are playing it by ear and parents will be notified by text and email.”

Stay with YWN as this is a developing story….


  1. Just ordinary everyday folk [of color] having an innocent time partying, doing what they love best and excel at: rioting, destroying and showing themselves in their true colors. A black day for Baltimore. Let’s stop all this PC nonsense and call a spade a spade. This has nothing to do with a deprived childhood or their ancestors being slaves, nor black men being arrested quite legitimately for committing crimes against societal norms, and yes that includes relieving yourself in the street. This Freddie Gray had a lengthy arrest record with convictions dating back until at least 2007 for theft, malicious damage to property and drug offences. He was no innocent targeted by the police; he was a professional criminal. These subhumans are honoring his memory by emulating what he knew so well, creating mayhem, thieving and destroying others’ property.

  2. 90% of homicides in Baltimore were black victims and black suspects (that number I not exaggerated) there is no excuse for the rioting. On the bright side not one black person missed work yesterday during the riots.

  3. It’s amazing to me that you would write “Torah Academy” in your story, even with the picture clearly showing that TA stands for Talmudical Academy. Does anyone there have any idea about editing and quality control?

  4. #1 #2

    So easy for you to say

    If you would be treated the way the avg. urban black male is by ‘egalitarian’ society ,then if you would have any self esteem You ought to be out there rioting

  5. @#3 that’s not ta FYI
    @#4 do you have any idea what you’re talking about? How come there are no more minorities except the black people that this happens to?…and a black person himself said what I wrote plus almost none of these people knew Freddie far as I’m concerned when you put out messages that high school kids should riot you’re holding back you’re own race…do you you know that 70% of the blacks in that area are addicted to heroin? According to polls that is…they have no one to blame but thenselves.
