Or that’s part of the ten ppl…?

No women

No women

NY state law only allows for 10 people total in the building. All 10 would need to be men in order to make a minyan.

Lol, how is that going to work.
The second the doors unlock the crazies will start to push their way in.
Bad idea, 770 should stay locked until it can open at full capacity.

Finally !

Finally !

Exactly ! Finally some one understands!!! 770 can open when lehavdil sports stadiums open . It’s just not possible to put a limit . And soon will be Gimel Tammuz with thousands of guests .

The people that would come to CH for Gimmel Tammuz are smart enough not to come this year.

What is the goal of this test? There’s definitely room for ten adults . It’s that once the shul opens publicly every one will come in close contact with each other . I’m not understanding

10 ppl

How do you become one of the 10 representatives?…

You didn’t know?
Guest
You didn’t know?

This is turning into a game of the haves vs the have-nots.

This is a terrible “experiment”

Representatives?
Guest
Representatives?

Representatives by definition are chosen by the people they represent. Is there going to be an election, or will these representatives be appointed by a select privileged group and in the end represent nobody? Once again, yichus rules the day. Or is it money this time?

What’s the point?
Guest
What’s the point?

I don’t get the point of this at all. This will just continue division within the community when people are chosen over others to “represent the community” and determinations of who’s “essential” vs non essential.

Seems pretty ridiculous.

Who will those 10 be, and who decides?

Who will those 10 be, and who decides?

Relatives of the original 40 families from Lubavitch Russia?

It wasn’t like the doors were open and unlocked just they only allowed 10 people inside. The doors were locked, and were opened before each of the tefillos to let 10 people inside. Bh, it worked well, no incidents happened on shabbos, and iyh soon they will be able to, slowly but surely, let more people inside, until we will once again to have 770 back to normal.
