Jewish institutions throughout the eastern United States remained closed following the onslaught of superstorm Sandy.
Sandy, which was downgraded from a hurricane late Monday night, made landfall near Atlantic City Monday, with hurricane-force winds of up to 85 mph and heavy rains.
At least 15 people in the United States and 68 outside of the U.S. have been killed so far in the one-of-a-kind storm, and more than 6 million people in 13 states are without power.

The Jewish Community Center in Manhattan also announced that it would be closed until it is safe to return.
