Many years ago when there was a fire in my dorm room and I lost many of my possessions my parents insurance covered the loss and paid out full replacement cost

Depending on the individual policy, most home owner policies do cover a certain amount of property that is not ‘home’. The Bochurim should check with their parents and see if their homeowner policies will cover their lost property. Good luck!

It took so long for the firemen to get started & it seemed like there weren’t enough fire hoses to do the job. I don’t know that just what it looked like.

But BH the boys are unharmed.
Can an agent answer…Wouldnt the damage to personal items be covered under their parents homeowner’s or renters insurance policy?

BS”D A Bocher assumes his stuff is insured as it ought to be, the Yeshiva ought to reimburse them not that they have to raise the funds themselves, their time is to be spent learning and Mivtzoim

BH no on e was hurt… But…
It is time all institutions schools and camps realize that maintenance and the safety of our children is not a game
This was a situation that could have been avoided
We need there to be standards

If there parents have home owners insurance policy it will cover there possessions while away at school
Also some renters policy’s provide the same coverage.

Each bocher should be claiming from their home insurance.

I think the yeshiva should be held accountable since it was a old boiler that started the fire

Even if there is coverage under their parents’ homeowners policy, there is probably a nice-sized deductible(could be $1000 or more)!
