Youre too kind. Stubborn Mules. There is no piety in this decision. Its a game of chicken. So if you're playing a game for animals...you can be called one too.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Even worse. They’re not doing it to workship G-d, they’re doing it out of vanity and peer pressure. Herd mentality backfiring in a really ugly way. How sad, sheep to the slaughter R”L.

I think many just see this as some type of gezeira and better to daven and die than to live without shulls

Sadly this is simply not going to hit till it explodes.

And then they will claim to weren't warned

They will claim they didn't see it coming

They will blame the internet, gay parades, link shaitels red lipstick, Pink toe nails...

So sad...

The president of the shul who is a medical professional cant seem to convince him!!!

Then maybe the President of the shul and board should overule the Rav!

It doesn't work that way in a shteibel.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

To qualify my statement - I am not g-d forbid, suggesting that the Board should overrule the Rav in halachic matters. What I am suggesting is at some point this becomes a business/compliance matter, and maybe we word a statement like - 'While the Rav insists that we keep the shul open, we are required to state that the vast majority of health professionals have urged people not to congregate at this time'.

Operations & Finance. The rav owns the shteibel, so he has all the power.

How do we get one of those animated videos made? The ones that explain in simple science terms how this epidemic works and how spreading it and not staying home will cause untold numbers to die

From the Shul next door:

They are opening a new “bein hazmanim” minyan for Shacharis and Mincha. They do ask that you soap your hands on the way in and only come if you’re 100% fine. I imagine it will be rather crowded and the regulations not adhered to.

Also, they are serving as an off-site classroom for a local school that was forced to close. They must still see it as only a legal inconvenience, as opposed to a measure designed to save lives.

Disclaimer: I would still go to shul if there was a proper protocol in place.
If it’s true that your lost contagious when you are asymptomatic , it’s absolutely ridiculous to say come “if your %100 fine”
