Brooklyn federal judge ordered a permanent injunction Tuesday to end New York’s Covid-19 pandemic-related capacity limits for Orthodox Jewish synagogues.
Signed by U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, the 5-page order cites assurances from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s lawyers that houses of worship will be removed from Cuomo’s executive order.February 10, 2021 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #1947072ujmParticipant
Back to Minyan as usual?February 10, 2021 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #1947124mommamia22Participant
End of capacity limits doesn’t mean end of virus. Shuls need to (continue to) enforce mask-wearing and find ways to space people apart until everyone is vaccinated.February 10, 2021 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1947131charliehallParticipant
Lots of things are legal that should never, ever, EVER be done. Like smoking cigarettes. And attending any crowded indoor religious event. Both can kill you.February 11, 2021 9:50 am at 9:50 am #1947256nishtdayngesheftParticipant
Makes sense who over here would be in favor of never joining a minyan.
That’s right, it’s the same person who irrationally supports legalization of pot, while being so gung ho against other types of smoking. And against davening with a minyan, while smoking pot is “not dangerous”.February 11, 2021 10:51 am at 10:51 am #1947263GadolhadorahParticipant
UJM: Sure. Go back to business as usual. That would be consistent with all the other useful and well-informed eitzah you have shared with us on other Covid related matters.February 11, 2021 1:51 pm at 1:51 pm #1947312commonsaychelParticipant
@charliehall, there are a lot of idiotic, irrational and illegal rules that were promulgated in the name of public safety and health and this will go down in the history books as one of them.
Just as I would not go up to some random person smoking cigarettes or pot and tell him not to smoke it, I would not have the temerity to tell someone how to daven.
This shabbos I was out of the Tri State area and the shul I davened in had a full mask policy, they also had a no cell phone use policy during weekday davening [it was a yeshivish place so shabbos was obvious].
My regular shul has no official policy in regard to covid so some wear and some don’t and we all get along with each other.
I fully complied with both rules [covid and cell use] and didn’t have the chutzpa to tell others what to do and that is what I expect anyone davening in our shul to do the same.February 11, 2021 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #1947465RememberThatParticipant
Now, a choice is left for Mr. Wilhelm (de Blasio) to repair some of his huge damage to the kehilohs.
