Your shul and Yamim Noraim
« on: August 31, 2020, 04:08:24 PM »
As shuls are preparing their plans for a highly unusual RH/YK, I'm wondering what if anything your shul is doing differently this year, in terms of outdoors multiple minyanim, shorter davening, masks, SD, etc.

Of particular personal interest are minyanim in Flatbush that are taking significant precautions. Like many, we have been avoiding large simchos and social gatherings, but there's no parallel option to skip RH/YK davening.

For 15+ years, we have davened in one of the largest yeshivos in the area, with 1000+ men and 500+ women. However, this year they are not requiring masks, and are not even offering a masked section. Their only change is a 2nd minyan, with 60% of the men in the main minyan and 40% in the other, but that will still leave people way closer than 6 feet for hours on end, not to mention the singing, so we are looking for a yeshivish davening that offers appropriate precautions, if such a thing still exists.

I think itís odd that thereís talk of solutions for shofar blowing with a mask over it, or in a different room so germs donít spread-in the meantime weíre blowing shofar the whole elul sho far (I had to,sorry) In shul :o

I heard in STL they cover the end of the shofar with a mask.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
