In Jerusalem, the renowned and venerated Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim has issued a letter in Hebrew and English, pressuring its rabbinic students and members of the yeshiva to “immediately get a vaccine” against the measles virus if they have not already done so.
“All Bnei HaYeshiva,
According to the Ministry of Health, anyone who was not vaccinated for measles, is requested to immediately get a vaccine! Please go to the Health Office, Recov (sic) Yaffo 86 during reception hours.”
Last Thursday, an unvaccinated 18-month-old baby died in Jerusalem as a result of measles.
