Asking for someone:
Are there any Sephardi shuls in Brooklyn that don’t abide by the SY takkana against gerim?July 26, 2022 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #2109255GadolhadorahParticipant
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.July 26, 2022 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #2109257
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.July 26, 2022 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #2109258
In any event, there are countless non-Syrian Sephardic Shuls in Brooklyn.July 27, 2022 1:04 am at 1:04 am #2109274
Yes, what are some of those places?July 27, 2022 6:03 am at 6:03 am #2109313commonsaychelParticipant

I don’t want to share which one me and my three wives are due paying community members of, since GodolHaDofi will then start picketing outside every Shabbat that we are there.July 27, 2022 10:16 am at 10:16 am #2109373lowerourtuition11210Participant

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 ShtiebelJuly 27, 2022 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #2109606SfaradiGamurParticipant
Probably not, unless you go to a Temanni or Persian shul. Egyptian and Moroccan Kehilot in Brooklyn also adopted this rule.July 28, 2022 1:51 am at 1:51 am #2109641Avi KParticipant
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).July 28, 2022 7:25 am at 7:25 am #2109644
Avi: All Syrian rabbonim fully support it.July 28, 2022 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #2109974Ng76b3cParticipant
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 communitiesJuly 28, 2022 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #2110105Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
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”?July 28, 2022 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #2110134
Actually they don’t count a ger for a minyan or give them an aliyahJuly 29, 2022 9:37 am at 9:37 am #2110197August 3, 2022 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm #2111811SfaradiGamurParticipant
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.
