Where do you see pro?
Since porches have serious problems which doesn’t allow for regular chazaras hasha”tz etc...
So that’s why they’re mentioning yard minyanim

The reason for yard is because there are actually some people who don't live in townhouses believe it or not and are unable to have porch minyanim.

They’re pro. The way they wrote about yard minyanim in a matter-of-fact tone, made me think I missed a previous announcement where they were mayor it completely. Bh I joined my first minyan in almost 2 months, it made for a nice birthday present.

If this works, hopefully other shuls can follow with social distancing. I would prefer it being outside.

I assume in a crowded place like Williamsburg having it outside may be impractical and hard to control.

Evidence shows that during singing, the virus drops appear to fly particularly far.

The theory is that 30 people studying individually are less likely to socialize than 30 people coming together to pray. If you have never been to a yeshiva, this theory would make a lot of sense.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

I can't see how such nitpicking can pass constitutional srutiny.

The comparison between indoor services and outdoor parks is ridiculous though.

Golf courses have indoor clubs that can be packed, and they're open. (He didn't write that in the tweet though).

Only if you can't maintain distancing, officially.
