Chief Rabbi Isak Haleva Sent a Video Message About Coronavirus EpidemicTurkish Jewish Community´s Chief Rabbi Isak Haleva broadcasted a video message due to the Coronavirus epidemic, advising the Jewish people not to go to the synagogues where many people pray together.
Chief Rabbi Haleva in his video message said:
"We should not forget that all the precautions taken are for the health hazard which has come very near to us, not to expand and spread further. I want to remind that we have to refrain from some of our spiritual conducts and practices, temporarily.
We have to limit our tefilas, worships, and meetings these days temporarily. I have no doubt that our almighty G-d shall accept our worships and prayers we make in our homes.
I pray with all my heart, for this troublesome period to come to an end in no time with all our efforts, and I am praying to G-d of all people to grant health and wellness for all the people, for our country, and for our world."
