    Why is it OK to have a nochri clean a shul?

    If it’s better not to have a nochri clean a talles, then why does the same not apply to a shul?

    But according to the Alter Rebbe, the whole question doesn’t start since the Alter Rebbe Paskens that it’s not such a gnai this was all a discussion of one opinion brought in the Mishna Berurah

    why do you need to learn and go into other “poskem” If you already said what the Alter Rebbe writes.

    The way that i understand it is even the Mishnah Brurah permits it and when it says that yeclsh machmirim bze he learns out a chumrah, a hiddur mitzvah. Furrhermore now we are presented with a problem of most Jewish cleaners dont actually do the cleaning so is still a chumrah to choose them over a goy and he brings the Rema to say that yes it is.
