    A Brooklyn yeshiva agreed to pay the city $22,500 for continuing to hold religious services in its shuttered building, which had been deemed unsafe.

    The Department of Buildings slapped a criminal summons on Rabbi Abraham Low, the director of Yeshiva Kollel Tifereth Elizer, who pleaded guilty in December and accepted the fine, according to the DOB.

    After a fire broke out at a yeshiva construction site in August 2015, DOB inspectors found the building had no certificate of occupancy and was illegally occupied as a house of worship. It also lacked an automatic sprinkler system and fire-stopping material.

    The DOB issued an order to vacate the property and then gave out subsequent violations when the order wasn’t followed. The building was illegally used as a house of worship on numerous occasions, according to the agency.

    It was probably no worse than most kike owned rental property.
