- In order for the minyan to say 13 middot, does there actually have to be 10 people saying it or 10 people in the room is enough?
- Is there a chiyuv for one to answer 13 middot if he is in the room?
- A similar question, for the Aramaic parts of selichot, does there actually have to be 10 people saying it?
- The 13 middot are like other “devorim shebikidusha”, and should be said with a minyan. Even if not everyone is saying it, as long as they are listening and being part of it that is enough.
- Just because you are in the room doesn’t mean you have to actually say it.
- The aramaic parts definitely don’t need the 10 people to actually say it, as long as they are there
