Over a week after the Crown Heights Beis Din forbade organizing minyonim indoors or outdoors, the Beis Din Rabbonei Chabad in Eretz Yisroel published an identical psak din saying that everyone should daven alone, at home.
In a letter released Monday, Beis Din Rabbonei Chabad, the highest rabbinical authority of Chabad in Eretz Yisroel, spelled out four points in response to the rapid spread of coronavirus in Eretz Yisroel, and Kfar Chabad in particular.
“One should not make minyonim for davening or krias hatorah, even outdoors. Everyone should daven at home, alone,” the rabbonim wrote in the letter.
The rabbonim also wrote that one should only leave his house for the most urgent matters and that guests should not be invited for Pesach, including family. “Everyone must remain where they are now for the entirety of Pesach,” they said.
Signed on the letter were Harav Yitzchok Yehuda Yaroslavsky (Kiryat Malachi), Harav Avrohom Michoel Halperin (Yerushalayim), Harav Menachem Mendel Gluckowsky (Rechovot), Harav Yochanan Gurary (Holon), Harav Yosef Hecht (Eilat), Harav Moshe Havlin (Kiryat Gat) and Harav Yosef Hendel (Migdal Haemek).
