How Much Effort To Pray with a Minyan

Praying with a minyan is very important and you should travel up to 18 minutes away in order to get to a minyan.
Note If waking up early will mess up the rest of your day, you do not need to wake up to go.
Example You may pray by yourself if joining a minyan would cause you:
  • To be late to work,
  • To lose your job,
  • To interfere with your caring for a sick person or someone who needs attention,
  • To injure your health,
  • Financial loss, or
  • Shalom bayit problems.
