The Beis Din of Crown Heights has posted a new sign on their bulletin board, reiterating what was announced in their name before krias Hatorah on Shabbos Parshas Korach at 770 Eastern Parkway in Crown heights. The new rule is that the gabbai will no longer accept Mi Shebeirach requests, but rather each mispalel can stand around the bimah and recite the Mi Shebeirachhimself.
The following is a translation of the sign:
20 Tamuz 5772 (10.07.2012)
This is the new rule announced during Shabbos Parshas Korach in 770 before Kriah (while the Sefer Torah was being carried from the Aron Kodesh):
In the name of the Rabbonim, members of the Beis Din, we announce that from now and on, there is a new rule regarding Mi Shebeirach:
The length of time being used to say “Mi Shebeirach” is Tircha D’tziburah, therefore, anyone who wants to say “Mi Shebeirach” should come himself and stand next to the Bimah, and say himself the “Mi Shebeirach,” or ask someone else to say it for him (obviously, it should be said loud enough that others should answer Amen).
The only exception to the rule is for the “Mi Shebeirach” for a mother who gave birth, that the Gabbai can be asked to annouce the new name.
