Israel Chief Rabbis – Synagogues must close

In light of the increasing challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic, Chief Rabbis David Lau and Yitzhak Yosef issued a statement on Wednesday calling on the public not to pray in synagogues due to the danger of spreading the disease. The two chief rabbis said however prayer services with a minyan, a prayer quorum, could still be held outdoors with a maximum of ten men spaced two meters apart.
