At this point it’s each man for himself. For your protection avoid areas of high risk

Great social distancing and mask wearing (not)!

I guess they want Crown Heights to become a science experiment.

Wait..

Yes they care so much about Jewish life that they want to practice their right to peacefully assemble and pray. Have a problem with that? Then don’t go!
Most people are at very low risk of dying from this virus and would rather take a (mild) risk than stop living life.
All high risk people are welcome to avoid crowded places, take quercetin/zinc/vit d&c as a precaution if they wish and mask up if it makes them feel safer

NO SOCIAL DISTANCING NO MASKS PACKED LIKE SARDINES….

WELL LET ME TELL YOU WHO ARE THE ROIDFIM WHO WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR RACHMONO LITZLON THOSE OF OUR ELDERS IN THE COMMUNITY AND BEYOND….

Every person at 770 needs to wear a mask. Does no one care about each other and the spread of Covid19?

Not just masks

This should be condemed by the leaders of the community, its sakonas nefoshis! What are the gaboim of 770 thinking????!!!!!

insane
September 13, 2020 9:20 am

I cried watching the videos and looking at these pix. What are the tefillos worth when you care not about your fellow jews life? The Rebbe said to follow the medical professionals and certainly the rofeh yedid of the neighborhood – Dr Rosen. Yet right after everyone was told there is a great possibility of contracting covid in 770…..the majority is without masks and even those with masks wear it incorrectly….dancing and singing together….holding hands…packed quarters….for shame…for shame. pikuach nefesh comes before everything.

Masks?
September 13, 2020 9:23 am

Doesn’t this go completely against recommended protocols?

Amazing
September 13, 2020 9:31 am

If only I had known I could skip a decade of intense schooling and grueling hours of rotations not to mention crippling student debt and walk out knowing better than the doctors….

Terrible

A huge disrespect to the Crown Heights community. There is not social distancing people are on top of each other way too many people. People are not wearing masks. They need security at the guard to only allow a certain amount of people in and to take temperatures. Also a tutorial would be helpful for them to learn how to wear masks when wearing a mask you must cover your nose as well. This situation is not taken care of we are in very big trouble why are they allowing all these foreigners into our country? They were told not… Read more »

crowded many with out a mask.
close 770

Don't get it
September 13, 2020 10:46 am

I don’t understand why people can’t just decide for themselves to go to 770 or not.
If you are concerned stay home.
6% of 0.3%.

Why?
Reply to  Don't get it
September 13, 2020 12:22 pm

Because you are not an island. You live among other people. Your choices and actions have an impact on others. If you choose to go and then get Covid and, without symptoms spread it to someone else, you just made a choice that hurt another person.

Heartwarming davening!
Kuddos to those wearing masks, the rest was davening in 770 for the past 2 months and have antibodies, no need for a mask.

What?
Reply to  Beautiful
September 13, 2020 11:33 am

In case you didn’t notice, Dr. Rosen and medical professionals say that EVERYONE needs to wear a mask. They make no exceptions for those with antibodies.
Just pointing out.

Closing only option
September 13, 2020 11:03 am

It’s clear there is no regard for authority.
The only way to stop this madness is to close asap. Yes, I know there is a lot of money on the table since seats were sold.. But human life is more valuable

Really????
September 13, 2020 11:17 am

“….We strongly advise that all people avoid Davening in 770 for the time being.
There is a significant risk of contracting the virus in 770 currently.”

Dr. Rosen and the Gedaliah Society said this on FRIDAY.
How is this allowed to happen the very next day??????
If people in 770 cannot follow the rules necessary to PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY, then unfortunately 770 needs to be shut down again.

Whether or not you close 770, these people are now in stores, the men’s mikvahs etc without regard for their fellow Jews…

September 13, 2020 12:02 pm

Crown heights community, call 311 and shut 770 down. It’s the right thing to do.
Write in to the Rebbe first and ask for permission

Go ahead and snitch on your fellow Jews. Invite the anti semites right into your door. Back to the USSR.

This is America land of the free. Don’t fool yourself and think the politicians in charge have your best interest at heart. They will come for you second once you give them that power.

Wow!

Because the Rebbe would totally give permission to call the authorities on his fellow chassidim. Don’t make sense at all!

Clarifying Critical Misinformation

1) One of the commentators asked why can’t they leave quarantine if they test negative. Answer: During incubation period you will test negative so if you got exposed but in the incubation period you will test negative. The incubation period can be up to 2 weeks. 2) Masks don’t help. Answer: We can argue many different things in life but the arguments needed to be rooted in facts. Anyone who argues that it doesn’t help are not people who studied it or read the studies. There are over 170 studies in the lancent from across the world that show without… Read more »

I read all the heartwarming comments.
Why dont all the kvetchers go to one of the many shuls in crown heights.
Let the bochurim be there by themselves.

why???
September 13, 2020 4:04 pm

Why are we endangering our community like this? This is a perversion of chassidishkeit and frumkeit. Pure SELFISHNESS! Where will everyone be when schools are closed down and our children suffer when NO ONE is enforcing proper protocol now??? Why are we doing this to ourselves???

Do we need a reminder of how families suffered during lockdown? How children suffered doing zoom school?? Why are we not standing up and saying THIS IS NOT OK!!!?

um… I don’t want to sound mean, but what struck me during selichos in 770 wasn’t the lack of masks… it was the lack of kavod Beis HaMedrash! this is how chassidim treat the rebbe shul? you came to take selfies? to record selichos snippets and share on social media? to read selichos from your phone and check statuses simultaneously? this is how we came back to shul after it being locked for three months?! Didn’t we learn ANYTHING?! Yes, You must listen to doctors, but last I checked you must listen to Shilchon Uruch and rabbonim too. The Rebbe… Read more »
