Maariv with a mincha minyan

+1
−0

I'm not fully finished with my hypothetical but it goes something like this:

If I davened mincha at the earliest possible time, I can daven maariv before sunset.

If I am called to help out with a mincha minyan that is meeting a little before sunset, can I daven maariv (let's assume, without judgment, that they say Ashrei really slowly and I can say sh'ma quickly, so we would all hit kaddish and shmoneh hesrei at the same time)?

Would this be considered davening maariv "with a minyan" for me? (whether or not there are any consequences to that is not my focus -- I just want to know if one can daven a "different" prayer service which is textually identical, and get credit for being with a minyan)


Now that I think about it, the opposite case would be easier to imagine. Someone who hasn't yet davened mincha standing in with a group already davening maariv -- can he daven "with" them and consider himself as having davened mincha with a minyan?

A similar case (but with shacharis and mussaf) is discussed by a few אחרונים, and משנה ברורה (90:30) rules it does count in that case.

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
