Start with Shomer Shabbos being closed for the first time in 102 years.
770 closed for the first time in 80 years.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Anyone have a list of shuls in BP that are closed. The obstinate shoiteh rav of a big shul with an elderly population of members need "evidence" before he closes his shul. Maybe its time to start naming names...
Has nobody in that shul tested positive or in quarantine ?

Have Dr. Bennett give him a tour.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Who's testing?

Just assume everyone is positive.

Someone just has to scare his constituency from showing up. He can isolate himself in Shul if he prefers.

Why do so many here think his constituency will stop showing up? They all think the same AND they have rav to rely on.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

If we canít get through to him we can try to speak sense into them. Chip away at the weakest link, once people start buying in the tides can turn.
