How important is Minyan?


Davening with a minyan is not merely a better form of prayer than individual prayer; davening with a minyan is an obligation. The Shulchan Aruch (90:16) rules that one who is on the road need travel only up to 18 minutes (the length of a mil) to arrive at the site for a minyan, but that is if one is on the road, and travelling to minyan would be difficult. One who was at home would be required to travel further, although it is not clear how much further.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:27)

Have a great day,
