The official position of Ani Judaism is to forbid the Covid-19 jab. An official religious exemption letter signed by the Rabbi for North America (R' Eved Banah) is available upon request for members and guests of the Wes Smith community.
Earlier this week, an Orthodox Court in New York published its Halachic delineation: "It is absolutely forbidden to administer or even to promote this injection to children, adolescents, young men or women; even if it means that they will not be permitted by the government to attend yeshiva or seminary or to study abroad, etc. It is an explicit obligation to protest against this mandate, and anyone who can prevent the injection from being forced upon our youth must do so, forthrightly and emphatically."
For more information including prohibitions to protect the pregnant and the elderly, please read the attached documents (pictures).
