The current outbreak in my area was seeded by a church that took no precautions and is now suing the county government after being ordered to close. (The lawsuit was filed before the Supremes ruled that New York cannot impose limits on churches--thank you ACB.) Yet my synagogue hasn't held a single in-person event since the middle of March and will not hold any in the foreseeable future, if ever (some members now oppose opening if there is any risk of anything, and there is always some risk of something).

However, some streams of Judaism prohibit using electronics on the Sabbath, so you are demanding that adherents of them give up Shabbat and holy day services altogether, or surrender other civil rights. That kind of thinking might go over better on Campfire or Conservative Fools (if you think they don't go in for religious hatred, use specifically Muslim worship as the example), or Atheist Fools.
