Rav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim, said today that bochurim in the Mir from the Diaspora should remain in Eretz Yisroel for Pesach, because it is unclear that they’ll be able to return to Eretz Yisroel after Yom Tov due to the current Covid-19 situation.

In a letter written by Rav Finkel, he says that the hanhalah of the yeshiva will do everything for the ruchniyus and gashmiyus of the talmidim during bein hazemanim.

Rav Finkel writes that this recommendation to remain was made with the approval of Rav Chaim Kanievsky.
