No shame?!

if there is space for more people available, why don’t they get raffled off just like the first ten spaces??

I think its time for elections for new gaboyim.

No worry

No worry

The court ruling that they are not in charge will, in time, obviate the whole thing anyways

Just wondering who is making sure the women’s section also abides by rules ? The place is governed by a few self appointed homeless . Will the Gabboim make sure ? It might be best to just keep the section closed for now .

i wonder if the real owners and managers of the property – as recently ratified in court – will allow this development to continue. Often, in the last 60 years, novel and unusual things emanated from 770. So too now, seems like the first shul selling seats in this Covid time is 770. Seems to me to be an unusual time to charge money for something not previously costing, and an unusual thing to charge for – tefila b’tzibur, and an unusual place to be charging – 770. But, what do I know? I don’t own or operate a shul.… Read more »

who gets the money?

great idea
Guest
great idea

no different than my shul selling aliyos on yomtov
there’s no fair way to do it without leaving someone out
it’s not fair I can’t afford maftir yonah, but there’s no other way to do it without offending
so the gaboyim are allowing 10 people by raffle in the shul, and selling the kingston shul seats.
i think it’s pure brilliance

great idea
Guest
great idea

brilliant idea
no fair way to decide who should be allowed in the shul
so they do a goiral on 10 places in the main shul, and sell the zchus to the kingston shul
no different than every shul selling aliyos on yomtov

the women section is being open for the men to daven in, women arent being allowed in 770

why only 10?
Guest
why only 10?

pathetic on many levels. 1st off the shul should have many more than 10 based on its size( walmart , target ) planes are seating full. how can they charge money for this???? also theres a big mistake in understanding this aguch thing that they own 770. they might have the ownership to the bldg, but not to run it, the Rebbe gave his directive on this

BH!

The best part of the article is the opening line “Police are requesting the public continue to daven”
