FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Is this discussion connected with the occasional difficultly in making a minyan, especially Mincha/Ma’ariv in the winter months when services are early?
No. This process began before the occasional challenge of making a minyan. Further, the decision about whether to count women in the minyan (which is just one of many roles being considered) will not take into consideration how such a change will affect our ability to make a minyan.
