Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy, 9120 W. Olympic Blvd. will remain closed until at least Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A sign on the school's door says the school is closed, adding, "We will miss you" and "Have a meaningful Purim."

The festival of Purim, which began Monday night, typically includes the giving of money to the poor and sending gifts of food.

The newspaper says digital classes will be available to students.
