    Following the disasters that have occurred in recent months in the Eretz Yisroel, the gabbaim in 770 Shul, have begun to implement a number of changes that will ensure the safety of the many mispallelim that come on a daily basis.

    In the last month and a half, two disasters occurred in Eretz Yisroel that led to the deaths (r’l) of 47 people with hundreds wounded, all due to insufficient advance preparation for the events.

    As a result of these tragedies, many Chabad shluchim and askanim around the world have begun to and add various safety measures in order for such disasters to not reoccur.

    Also, even in Beis Chayenu, the shul’s gabbai decided that the first precaution would be to clear the main entrances and exits from the synagogue.

    On Erev Shabbos signs were hung on behalf of the gabbaim near the front and back entrances informing the worshipers that the area should be kept free of objects, and all items left on the paths would be thrown out of the synagogue without prior notice without any responsibility at all.

    In a conversation with a ChabadInfo correspondent, gabba Rabbi Yosef Losh says that unfortunately “there are many people who think that the walkways are a good place to store luggage or scooters while they are praying, which poses a potential safety hazard to passers-by. The gabbaim also intend to strictly enforce the new rule and not allow any items at the entrances and exits. ”

    The person responsible for day to day operations of the shul, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Kratz tells us: “We began making changes in the synagogue earlier this year, but the recent tragedies pushed for a faster implementation of things.”

    “Furthermore, we have banned the establishment of booths intended for advertising or fundraising for various campaigns and organizations. This is all for one purpose only – to keep the aisles at the entrances and exits to 770 empty of objects and tables to allow a clean and spacious passage for worshipers.”
