Many within the Jewish observant community have reached out to us with specific questions regarding minyanim. These include questions regarding the legal permissibility of so-called “backyard minyanim”, the halachic permissibility of these minyanim and whether or not minyanim can be safely conducted at his time. We are not lawyers and we are not Rabbis. We believe that guidance pertaining to minyanim per se should remain under the purview of the Rabbinate.
We continue to offer medical guidance and health advice to the community of Rabbanim as they address these complex matters that are so important to us all. In the interim, we urge everyone to continue with physical distancing measures which are vitally important for our community’s safety and well being.
