Do you want to be one of ten men allowed into 770 for the Rebbe’s Minyan? There’s a lottery for that.
The Gabboim of 770 have published a form that members of Anash can fill out to join a lottery for who can participate in each minyan in 770.
“According to the decision of the Gabboim and Rabbonim, the Rebbe Minyan in 770 will continue to take place with a ‘Minyan Mitzumtzum’ at the regular times (Shachris 10, Mincha 3:15, Maariv 9:30.) within the guidelines set by the city and state of NY,” the gabboim wrote.
Due to present rules and guidelines in New York State, no more than 10 people may gather in any building at once for religious services, severely limiting the ability for synagogues to open.
The NYPD’s 71st Precinct, which has law enforcement jurisdiction over 770, reminded the community Motzei Shabbos of the need to maintain Social distancing while indoors and out. They asked that people not congregate outside 770, and should instead daven at porch Minyanim until the State rules and guidelines are changed.
The raffle will take place each evening at 8:00pm for the next day, and the winners will receive a message from the Gabboim informing them.
