    Asking for someone:

    Are there any Sephardi shuls in Brooklyn that don’t abide by the SY takkana against gerim?

    I have been to several simchas at the Kol Eliyahu sephardic shul in Sheepshead Bay. Its a beautiful shul with a very welcoming tzibur that follows a Lebanese hashkafah. It seemed a bit more “modern” than the Syrian Sephardeshe shuls I’ve been to but others here in the CR may know better if they rigidly follow the Syrian takana on geyrim.

    The SY shuls are just as happy as anyone else to have geirim. Their takana is only against members marrying a ger and against their rabbis conducting conversions. Nothing else. Geirim are more than welcome to join SY Shuls.

    In any event, there are countless non-Syrian Sephardic Shuls in Brooklyn.

    Sad that he hasn’t even looked up to the ezras nashim and realized that Nos. 1 and 3 quietly walk across the street after the start of davening to the Ashkenazi Shtiebel

    Probably not, unless you go to a Temanni or Persian shul. Egyptian and Moroccan Kehilot in Brooklyn also adopted this rule.

    There are many different Sephardi and Eidot haMirzrach (strictly speaking, a Sephardi is someone who is descended from Gerush Sepharad) communities. So far as I know, the takana only applies to the Syrian community (and not all Syrian rabbis supported it).

    Avi: All Syrian rabbonim fully support it.

    No one is against geirim from outside communities
    After all it a mitzva deoraita to love a ger
    The takana was for people in those communities

    So, if a potential ger comes to Syrians, do they tell him: “go to Chabad, then come back and we will give you a shishi”?

    Actually they don’t count a ger for a minyan or give them an aliyah

    @dov, now you have at least 15 option from various people

    Maybe try Chaim Sha’al on ave N and east 12th. They’re mostly Israeli, with mixed Sephardic background, I highly doubt they care about the Ger rule. There is a Moroccan shul on N and 14th, called Yismach Moshe. They probably don’t either care about the Ger rule.
