Officials in Minsk, Belarus, refused to renew a lease on the city’s only Hebrew school. The school rented space for its weekly classes at an evening school for the deaf until the education authorities refused to renew the annual lease for the Jewish school, without giving an explanation for the decision. Classes at the Hebrew school, which first opened in 1999 and had 70 students, have ended.
