YU’s 2021 Seforim Sale Is Cancelled

As reported in The Commentator, Yeshiva University’s annual student-run seforim sale, planned for February 2021, has been canceled due to COVID-19 safety concerns. The next sale is scheduled for February 2022.

“After much research and analysis, we have decided not to have the in-person seforim sale this year due to social distancing restrictions and health and safety guidance,” 2020-21 Seforim Sale CEO Eli Seidman (SSSB ’22) told The Commentator. “We explored many different options. However, given the ever-changing New York State and New York City guidelines, it was not possible to plan and host the event this year, and a virtual sale was not an option.”

In past years, the Seforim Sale was held in Belfer Hall’s Weissberg Commons on the Wilf Campus. “In terms of spacing …YU is using Weissberg Commons as a classroom, and the seforim sale cannot be held there,” Seidman added. “In the time we’re living in right now, they need these large spaces for socially distant classrooms and other things.”
