Presidentbbshul Yaakov Grunstein
In case you didn't see last night's email, if you do not sign up you will not be allowed to participate in any of the minyanim this coming Shabbos. We are under the scrutiny of the authorities and once were are full, we cannot accept any more people.
Last night's email below:
It pains ne to have to send this email. Unfortunately, with the Governor's new guidelines still in effect, we have no choice but to comply:
As such, for now, we have to make various changes to the way we have been doing things: Such changes are in compliance with past board meetings and the Rav's p'sak. Hopefully, the governor will keep to his 14 day and it will end next Friday - let's pray.
1- No Women
2- No guests, unless we have extra room (as the limitation is on the amount of people not socially distancing).
3- No children
4- Priority will be given to full members then associate members on a first come first serve basis, then others.
5- Being that there is more space outdoors than in, once the inside is full, you will automatically be sent outside - an email will be sent to you late Thursday night
6- In order to maximize the seating, aside for the above priority, priority will be given to those who will be attending ALL 4 minyanim inside the main sanctuary on Shabbos (if you do not attend one of the minyanim, being that we are limited to 10 people, we will not have a minyan), therefore we will move you to another section.
An email will be sent out late Thursday night/early Friday morning with your placement.

All the best,
Unfortunately the Agudah lost the TRO (court case) and so the contingency plan will fall into place
Allwhat is posted is in accordance with the Rav's p'sak and with the President's agreement.
Unfortunately due to the 10 people maximum rule - No ladies will be allowed throughout the chag (say yizkor at home) emails will go out for those who signed up for specific minyanim

A GUt Moed,
Due to the current guidelines which go into effect 12:01 am Friday (tonight), the Rav paskened the following:
We must adhere to the law of the land!
THEREFORE, the first 10 FULL members that arrive will have preference to enter the building and attend the 6/8am minyan.
Further, I had a lengthy conversation with the DOH who told me that while the governor did indeed set guidelines, those guidelines were being challenged on the Federal level and as such the they are not enforceable. Nonetheless, we will continue to remain vigilant and adhere to the CDC guidelines of mask wearing, social distancing and with the recent uptick, if you have been exposed to anyone who has COVID you should refrain from coming into the shul for 14 days and get tested before you attend any services – if a special need arises or more clarification, please call me directly.
