All the chumros people are keeping are worthless if they do not listen to the Rabbonim’s Psak. Where does it say in the Torah that your sechel is greater!!

It’s amazing how Rabbi Braun breaks it down to a science.Additionally he does it in a very respectful and non confrontational manner. Let’s make the Rebbe proud and not make a chilliul Hashem!

While be Melamed Z’chus on those not listening, it’s very clear not to do any minyan. Anyhwere.

I saw how those bochrim are dovening. Approximately 50% of them are standing 6 feet apart the rest of the. Bochrim are standing 2 feet apart.

The problem be with 6 feet apart Is there are winds blowing the germs from one person to the next so 6 feet apart is Not enough.
