    So how does this work? If a person is a home abuser, G-d forbid, and hits his wife, that means he cannot be counted towards a minyan? So what happens if he davens with another group of 9 unsuspecting people? Is such davening not considered davening with a minyan?

    I think you’re right. I think the people would be beshogegim not davening with a minyan. (Unless a rasha, like a qatan, could be counted in extremis at the 10th toward a minyan with sefarim present.)

    It’s certainly worth bouncing of the chevrah on Avodah.

    Not sure what Avodah is exactly… Thanks for the reply.

    If you notice, I wrote “Avodah” as a link. Avodah is an email discussion group that AishDas runs.

    The discussion the ensued by my repeating this post there is under the subject line Counting a Wife Beater Toward a Minyan“. (Click on that link to be taken to that subject line within Avodah’s index.
