Solution?
Why do people think a barrier helps if you are within 6 feet of the other person? I see people standing on opposite sides of a fence that has this fake greenery woven through it as if thats good enough. This is the one time that I agree with you know who about people trying to outsmart Hashem and be frummer than Him. 
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Just when you thought things were getting better:  :(

Letter from Yitzchak Berkovits - Sanhedria Murchevet Israel

Rabbosai!

I have been davening on my rooftop (being mitztaref to a minyan down below) from where I get to see the goings on in the area.

The matzav is out of control. People are dreying around without masks, minyanim allegedly keeping to the rules but in reality are nothing more than “kosher style” without masks, krias haTorah is as usual and the two meters observed for Shmoneh Esrei at best. It seems as if people are under the misconception that the government’s decision to allow outdoor minyanim is an “all clear” sign and that the danger is ostensibly over.

Let’s face it, adhering to the rules in a minyan is not so practical and is just not happening.

Even if you believe your minyan is the exception, we must make a statement. We must not Chas V’Sholom turn into another .... . The mashchis has not been mavchin. It has attacked yereim ushleimim, manhigim and roshei yeshiva no less than any other part of the population, if not more. Who has the right to claim bitachon on the cheshbon of chalilah infecting others and endangering their lives?

I urge our kehilla and the entire Anglo community in Eretz Yisroel to go back to the mirpesset minyanim or davening b'yichidus. I am r”l in shloshim for my father hc”m and have yet to daven far amud once. I am sure that in today’s situation, urging the tzibbur to take things seriously is a greater zechus.

Nobody in this world knows if, when and how this is going to end. Gedolei Yisroel will have to determine how to maintain Talmud Torah for young and old without recklessly endangering the tzibbur. The danger of worldwide rifyon is more serious than the threat of Coronavirus, and we do not have the right to be mekil on either front.

For now, I would suggest that all of you are mischazek in your own davening (aren’t 9 and 10AM Shachris minyanim in public during an eis tzarah something of a chilul HaSHeM?) and maintain for yourselves sedorim in your regular learning as well as in sforim that inspire more Ahava and Yirah. And of course, take advantage of everyone homebound in strengthening the family bond.

And May HaSHeM Hear our tefillos and bring not only a yeshuah from the mageifeh, but the geulah sheleimah bimheira.

Yitzchak Berkovits

That was me.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

One thing that a friend of mine noticed is that the instructions regarding aliyos on the english version is not there on the signed hebrew version. I am looking for the source of the english version and as of now have not been successful.
(The english version was not included in the rabbonim email or text or the one sent out by Aaron Kotler)

For everybody who is saying that davening with a minyan these days you may kill somebody

Do you drive over the speed limit? Bc driving over the speed limit should have the same din

Even driving under the speed limit kills plenty, but there is heter of doing things that are normal in normal situations.

Otherwise we would be home all day all the time.
Driving 100 miles per hour on a highway is not normal, however most drivers can keep perfect control driving 75 where its 65. The government is known to put low speed limits so that most people will only go up to 10 miles per hour above that number, and if someone feels that driving at speed limit is to much for them, or texts while driving, its the same issue of סכנת נפשות.
