The leaders of the European Rabbinical Conference call on all members of the Jewish communities on the continent to consult doctors and accept the recommendation to be vaccinated against the corona virus as soon as possible.

In a statement issued by the rabbis, they write: “And one should be heard by his doctor, and if they say to be vaccinated with the vaccine in their country, they should do so as soon as possible without delay.”

However, according to them, “all the holy communities must continue to obey the instructions of the health ministries in their countries and follow the outline they have set, most of them in consultation and coordination with the leadership of the communities.”

The announcement is signed by the President of the Conference and Rabbi of Moscow, Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, the Chairman of the Standing Committee and the Father of the London Court, Rabbi Menachem Gelli, and the Chief Rabbi of the Torat Chaim Yeshiva in Moscow, Rabbi Moshe Lebel.
