Jewish school in Minnesota closes

A Jewish boarding school in Minnesota is closing.

Yeshiva High School of the Twin Cities, which opened five years ago, is shutting down after failing to pay a $60,000 balloon mortgage payment in June, the Star Tribune reported Tuesday. The school’s website does not announce the closure.

The school was attempting to purchase a former Baptist church in Cottage Grove, Minn. It had made $400,000 in payments and added $200,000 in improvements to the building.

The school sign has been removed and the doors chained shut, according to the Star Tribune.

Yeshiva High had opened with 18 students and grew to 40 from around the world. It was aimed at Orthodox Jewish teenage males at risk.
