I'm assuming that's what they hang their "hats" on. But again, for me that's like observing the letter of the law so they can violate the spirit of the law.

Derech eretz kadma letorah. There's someone there who needs to say kaddish.

Anyway, it's not like it's a secret that we need help. Why can't they schedule their chevrusas for later in the morning and daven first?

Just for the record many do say it is forbidden to stop learning to help out a minyan, al pi halacha based on poskim not just whims

Then there was the shul in which I used to daven. When the 5:45 minyan needed a couple of guys from the beis medrash to complete a minyan, those guys learning said no because it was assur for them to interrupt their learning to help make a minyan.

How you like them apples? Talk about screwed up priorities...

2007-07-14T22:44:00.000-05:00

(From the previous anono)

5:45 am ?

No wonder you can't get 10 men.

(Even the people in the shiur probably all come late.)

If I come up with any other ideas, I might write again.

2007-07-13T19:05:00.000-05:00

I'm really curious as to what on earth Dr. Bean could be referring to. Maybe that applies not just to this comment, but in general :) Dr. Bean, are you this much like a magic 8-ball when talking to your patients?

PT, it must be a huge pain having those extra guys riiiighhht theeeere. You should pat yourself on the back for not kicking any of them. At least, that's how it's done back here in Queens. Remember? Sometimes it pays not to have to be that nice all the time.

As a side note, I think it's pretty cool that you can communicate with more or less the entire set of people in and around your minyan via email.

2007-07-13T18:12:00.000-05:00

This is the only 5:45 minyan in the city.

Sorry, I have no choices.

And for the record, my original email did offer booze.

2007-07-13T13:54:00.000-05:00

Please forgive me if this seeems unsympathetic, but couldn't you just find another Shul with an early Minyan? (Maybe closer to your place of work?)


Okay, Okay, This might be a much better approach:
You might suggest to the people of the Shiur that if they will agree to doven first and then Learn, then you will sponsor free coffee and donuts (or Maybe even bagels) for anybody who attends both.

This will increase both the Shiur-attendance and the Minyan attendance, and then everybody will Thank You:
Not just for the "freebies" but also for having increased both the Shiur-attendance and the Minyan attendance.
EveryBody Wins ! ! !
(I love CAPitals,
especially when EveryBody Wins ! ! !)

2007-07-12T09:03:00.000-05:00

ralphie: Maybe they learn first to help get them more into the proper kavannah for davening. Or maybe they think there's some extra merit for learning before davening. I just don't see how that's a bigger zchus than completing a minyan, especially when you have a mourner with a chiyuv.

But I'm with you. I'm just a modern orthodox apikores. What do I know?

DB: Hmm...cryptic. Perhaps I need to climb to some mountain peak and meditate to understand. Or maybe I need to start a chevrusah before davening.

trspn..tnspr: I figure, once I do my kvetching here, I lose the urge to kvetch in real life. It's better that way.

Minyan attendance can serve as a test in many ways. Kol hakavod to you for sending out a positive email, and for putting forth such effort to attend minyan with your busy schedule.

Seriously, by all means kvetch on the internet; just keep on putting forth that effort for minyan. Whatever it takes.

Safe travels this summer!

2007-07-11T18:11:00.000-05:00

It is a test placed before you by the Almighty, but it's not testing what you think.

2007-07-11T18:02:00.000-05:00

I, too, am shocked that these individuals can't daven first and learn after. But what do I know?
