The roofing debris had
been left by contractors re-
pairing the yeshivah build-
ing. The damage to the
interior of the building oc-
curred after the heat from
the blaze broke the adjacent
windows.

Rabbi Nachman Kahn,
yeshivah executive vice
president, told The Jewish
News that insurance inves-
tigators were inspecting the
yeshivah's roof and interior.
Fire officials estimated the

damage at $5,000-$10,000.
The yeshivah has insur-
ance, Rabbi Kahn said, but
he did not know if the dam-
age would be fully covered.
Most of the interior damage
was due to water and
smoke.
There are approximately
300 students who attend
classes in the Southfield
building: Rabbi Kahn said
the summer classes cur-
rently in session are half-
day classes, and students
from the affected rooms
have been moved to other
classrooms.
