770?

What will be the story with 770.
Everyone knows that 770 is NOT like every other shul!
People come from all walks of life, to spend time in 770.
They Didn’t mention it in the press conference.
We the chasiddim, want to know how it is going to open.

I doubt it

Given the fact that 770 isn’t like every other Shul as you mentioned, I doubt that it’s going to take a long time before it actually gets the green light to open. I hope that people won’t come in to sleep there.

How would define beyechidus if it’s open to EVERYONE??!

Inaccurate title

The title is inaccurate. Of course there is Halachic bearing. Everything has Halachic bearing. Only in this case, the halacha is to follow the Dr guidelines entirely (and not take anything else into consideration, such as hearing aseres hadibros etc etc). Vedal.

Is there going to be bachurim going around for aseres hadibros

One could also say that Yidden are Machmir on Pikuach Nefesh. It could also have been that the Beis Din gather the medical advice and then provide their own gedorim which extend that. They chose not to. This also assumes people will listen to medical advice. Are we also confident of that?

In short can I take 10 people outside my house to make prayers for the upcoming holidays?

Please, please rabonim, we need more specifics! What about over 65? Please reinforce your previous guidelines, ie about mask and gloves. People will just gather without being careful
We can’t afford Chas vsholom another outbreak!
