As the number of people infected with measles in the Orthodox Jewish community continues to grow due to a recent outbreak , so does the media attention surrounding it. More and more of our fans have reached out to us asking us to clarify that Orthodox Jews who don’t vaccinate are not doing so because of a religious exemption.

In fact, 99% of Orthodox rabbis say we must get vaccinated to perform the Torah commandments of guarding our lives and not causing harm to others.
