Yeshivas Luzern in Switzerland to close its doors

Update: Elul 5775 The Yeshiva has reopened with a small group of 16 Bochurim.
Reports in Israeli media- Sad news in the Yeshiva world after 60 years the Famous Luzern yeshiva one of the most respected yeshivos in Western Europe will be closing up after falling hard financially and accumulating large debt over one million swiss francs. The Yeshiva bais Yitzchock of Lucern was founded by Rav Moshe  Soleveichick zt'l and than taken over in 1964 by Rav Koppelman zt'l.  The Yeshiva blossomed under Rav Koepelman for 50 years. Since His petirah 4 years ago the yeshiva struggled financially and dsepite a few attempts to keep it going they had no choice now. The mashgiach called a meeting of the bochurim and informed them of the sad news. Ironicaly the Mir yeshiva in Eretz Yisrael began construction yesterday to widen its main entrance. Torah continues on.
