Jerusalem's Great Synagogue to be closed for High Holy Days for first time
The Jerusalem Great Synagogue will be closed to worshipers throughout the High Holy Days due to the coronavirus it said Sunday in a statement.
While there are many reasons to remain open for the High Holy Days ‚Äúin one format or another, nevertheless, the deciding consideration was the personal safety of every one of you,‚ÄĚ the statement said.
‚ÄúA deciding factor in this consideration is the lack of information [and the] confusion and debate between experts and the changes in regulations,‚ÄĚ it said. ‚ÄúThe Great Synagogue is not like other places of worship. It is spread out, requires health checks at the door, commits to forbid the entry of worshipers who did not sign up ahead of time and, of course, commits to limit the number of worshipers....

At least 40% of patients have no symptoms, while some stay ill for months on end, Fauci said.
"One of the things we're dealing with in this country is a real lack of understanding of the importance of everybody trying to prevent getting infected rather than inadvertently... propagating the outbreak..." Fauci said during a virtual panel sponsored by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.
Of all the viral diseases and emerging infections that he's encountered throughout his career, Fauci said he has "never seen anything with a range" like this virus....

This second lockdown could have religious consequences? besides ones dealing with health.‚ĚóūüĎé

excerpt from, "As coronavirus cases surge, Israel becomes first country to reintroduce nationwide lockdown"
To return to Israel the PM has declared a rigorous 3 week lockdown. All shops, apart from food shops and pharmacies, are closed down, restauarants are to be takeaway only, and no one is allowed more than 500 m from their house. This was extremely contentious, one Orthodox government minister resigned, and this will effectively ban any celebration of the Jewish new year, and the High Holy Days. At present, (similar to New Zealand), no foreign citizens, except permanent residence permit holders and I guess diplomats, may enter Israel. Other ministers and Knesset members are also angry with Mr Netanyahu, as this will severely disrupt the economy.
This little virus has caused horrendous disruption, maybe we need to sing Psalm 91, even Israel has been badly advised on this globalist virus and how to deal with it.

Don't forget about the part where Pelosi said she was set up at the hair salon. Yet she was the one who made the appointment.

Adriel, the Jews don't need a building either for such things ---at least temporarily. Many pastors now as far as that goes are using tents, which is a much healthier space.
I will sanctify the Tent of Meeting and the altar. I will also sanctify Aaron and his sons to minister to me in the priest‚Äôs office.
Adam Clarke's commentary on the Bible wrote: Exodus 29 Verse 44. I will sanctify-both Aaron and his sons] So we find the sanctification by Moses according to the Divine institution was only symbolical; and that Aaron and his sons must be sanctified, i.e., made holy, by God himself before they could officiate in holy things. From this, as well as from many other things mentioned in the sacred writings, we may safely infer that no designation by man only is sufficient to qualify any person to fill the office of a minister of the sanctuary. The approbation and consecration of man have both their propriety and use, but must never be made substitutes for the unction and inspiration of the Almighty. Let holy men ordain, but let God sanctify; then we may expect that his Church shall be built up on its most holy faith.
only a fool or a globalist/satanist would believe the number of deaths is 200000 - https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/08/shock-report-week-cdc-quietly-updated-covid-19-numbers-9210-americans-died-covid-19-alone-rest-serious-illnesses/?fbclid=IwAR1Uqv8o463JBTMilBo2qJm09OblLWYLLgRnUc1g57ElqAfjrWKnkTupKU8
9200, that's a FAR cry from '200,000'....no need to be an alarmist about a virus that has a low death toll, not that those deaths aren't troublesome, but when compared to flu deaths, which topped 34000 last year, it's hardly a 'pandemic'...
From Article:- "‚ÄúAnd even if we stand by these [rules], there is still a risk. One person makes a mistake; one person is positive [for the virus] and did not know; one person who can infect another. The Great Synagogue asks to prevent this risk [from affecting] every one of you.‚ÄĚ"
Don't worry folks GOD doesn't need bricks and mortar - however impressive - to receive worship and prayers from HIS servants.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
1Cor 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"
It‚Äôs easy to see why you support continued widespread closures, Jim, especially of churches. It must be tough to sing ‚ÄúOh, How I Love Jesus‚ÄĚ on Sunday and then vote for baby-slaughtering, sodomite-supporting godless communists on Tuesday.
Fauci should be arrested for his part in funding and spreading this virus... On April 27, 2020 it was reported that the National Institutes of Health, presumably with the authorization of President Donald Trump, suspended spending on the remaining $369,819 of a National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) grant to the EcoHealth Alliance, a long-time scientific collaborator with Chinese scientists, in particular, the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Despite that continuing controversy, on August 27, 2020, the day that Donald Trump was preparing to accept his party‚Äôs nomination for a second term as President of the United States, the NIH quietly and unceremoniously announced that the EcoHealth Alliance would receive $7.5 million as part of an $82 million program to create a global network of ten Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases (CREID). Leading this effort is Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force and a frequent sparring partner with the President over how best to ‚Äúslow the spread‚ÄĚ of the virus.--So, the President tells the NIH to STOP funding,and Fauci defies this command a few short months later. -https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/09/time-investigation-dr-fauci-niaid-accused-collaboration-china-covid-19-virus/
