    How important is it to daven with a minyan instead of davening b’yechidus? Is there any obligation of going to minyan?

    Let’s talk about this:

    So, where does a girl who has never seen the bright side of 11:00, on any day she has vacation; get off insisting on dating guys who never miss 7:30 shachris in yeshiva?

    Your tefilos are more likely to be accepted when you daven with a minyan, than if you daven alone.

    well, you can’t answer any ameins or amein y’hei shmei rabba or kedusha, barchu, or say tachanun, etc… without a minyan.

    My Rahm in a yeshiva I went to gave the following analogy: Davening in a minyan is like flying on a plane, but davening biyachidus is like being a bird. Meaning, on a plane, your going to get to you destination efficiently and effectively, but you don’t feel like your flying because your confined to the plane’s movements. Davening beyachidus may not get you very far, but you feel like you flying and exploring the realms of teffilah and connectiong with Hashem.

    Rav Moshe says it is an obligation (Igros Moshe OC 2:27).Read the SHulchan Aruch (90:9) some learn it differently.

    Sam4: Rav Moshe holds that if someone missed minyan he was oiver and it is an aveira?

    I can till remember a substitute teacher I had in grade school who actually tackled this topic with a mashal, which he proceeded to demonstrate:

    Imagine there’s a counterfeit $20 bill standing alone.

    Now imagine there’s a counterfeit $20 bill among many real bills.

    Which one will be spotted quicker and rejected?
