  3. One must have the mask on his face and keep 2 meters between participants. There are marks on the floor.
  4. Only 19 people can take part in the Tefila at any one time in the yard. If more people come they need to go down to the park nearby or to form another Minyan at the square by the entrance to the Shul.

We ask you not to give Tsedaka to outsiders who come to ask for it at prayer's time: we do npt know where they come from and what their health is like. At this Corona time we should take extra care not to be in touch with people we don't know.
