# 2774 Can’t See the Minyan for the Trees?


Q. (See questions 2771-73 above – regarding fences separating backyards for the purpose of having a minyan). How about tall trees, when their trunk is high and the branches with leaves are over the head of the people, do they separate the yards?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion as quoted by Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a is that the above scenario does not constitute a separation, and people on both adjoining backyards divided by those trees are to be counted together for a minyan.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a.
