Just saw this article.

BH it was when they were closed. supposedly was bad electrical wiring. that place can get packed, and it would not be so easy to get out.

You need a real semicha certificate. It also needs official notarized transalation. And you need a letter from religous institution stating how much time you spend per day/week administrating religious services. It needs to be a good part of the day too. And it must be specific about what you do.

You need an actual certificate? In that case many rabbeim wouldn’t qualify because they are rabbis without an official semicha.

are you able to get a break if you have a regular minyan in your house and make a nonprofit? like a friday night minyan? seems to be lots of these and i wonder whether this is part of the reason (and if i can take advantage of it :))
