Re: Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread Iím not taking sides here as Iím enjoying the nightly pop corn chat but from what I hear if the 5T local doctors giving advice would get their way (which they may get for some sides of the aisle) they will close shuls until we have no memory of corona. (Not tanking months ... talking a lot longer)
Heard first hand for all those asking my source

Why is it not a mehalach? How is it pointless? More people together the more is spreads. Supermarkets are bad but you got to eat, cleaning ladies are bad and Iíve seen rabbis say that. But how can you tell me that having minyanim and causing even more people to gather and pass on the virus is not bad as well?

A small controlled outdoor minyan will be easier to control than walking in to gg

Re: Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
Glad your showing off your ignorance in a way everyone can see it.

Far Rockaway and the Five Towns closed before Lakewood.Both Shuls and schools. It was the Friday before public schools closed. Passaic also closed before Lakewood. Brooklyn was spotty. The Sefardim closed before Lakewood too. Lakewood only closed when they were required to by law.

As you might not be aware, right now Five Towns/ Far Rockaway is doing much better than most other places in the region. Numbers are all the way down. And we are still the only place where the anti-minyan activists are going full force.

In addition, you don't belong on this thread if you live in Lakewood. Besides the fact, you simply don't understand the argument. According to Rabbi/Dr. Glatt, and according to some of our local Rabbis, you committed a grave sin by davening with a minyan this morning. Nobody believes you can violate the social distancing rules required by law. The question is to add additional takanos. As I said, either you didn't read the thread, or you simply don't understand what you read.
5 towns was closed before most places in tri-state thats 100% true. They did get hit very hard originally but now its quiet. And I can back you up that a very large number of rabbanim are pro minyan and just aren't interested in the politics behind it. My brother is a very close Talmid of R Jaeger and he told me that the rosh yeshiva is being very protective about this situation because he's very close to it and feels a huge responsibility. But otherwise lots of local rabbanim are giving the go ahead to outdoor minyanim. And if someone doesn't know the exact details of the happenings in the 5ts community, Idk why they would be commenting here.
And anyone davening with a minyan now, no matter the circumstance should stop complaining.

Really?!? I don't know of a single peirush that explains it that way. See מעשה רב אות רכא ובמשנה ברורה רל"ט שעה"צ ס"ק י"ז for starters. At least that is how we go l'halacha.
Multiple clear gemaras is a better source to go. שלוחי מצוה אינם ניזקין is for physical danger, but still the gemara says היכי דשכיח היזיקא שאני, so not a useful מכריע in this debate.

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Rabbonim Ban All Minyanim Due To COVID-19 (Split Topic)
Cuomo just made an announcement allowing for religious gatherings of up to 10 people with social distancing.
Dr glatt definitely isn't a happy camper right now
