Yeshivas Chevron Bochrim Fast After Finding Bugs in Their Lunch
Students of the Chevron Yeshiva will conduct a voluntary fast on Monday for half a day after finding bugs in the lunch that was served on Sunday.
An announcement that was hung in the Yeshiva read: “Due to the serious transgression that took place today in the cafeteria, and in consultation with our Rosh Yeshiva, HaGaon Rabbi Moshe Mordechai Farbstein Shlita, the Bochrim of the Yeshiva are taking upon themselves the fast of Ba”Hab tomorrow on Monday. Those who are interested should accept the fast upon themselves today before sunset.”
The Yeshiva will also be reading the special Krias HaTorah portion set aside for fast days during the morning Tefillah. Students told a reporter from Channel 10 news that during lunch “petitim” were served that contained hard-to-see bugs. “Until the situation was discovered, many had already partaken of the dish,” the students said.
