# 3140 Getting Our Act Together

Q. On question 3119 you mentioned It would stand to reason that it is better to count Sefira after a Zoom shiur since Poskim write that on the onset it is better to count Sefiras Haomer together with a Tzibur and Rov Am or congregation. And although a Zoom group does not create a minyan and one does not even have to answer amen to a brocho recited by that media, for some purposes such as a Seudas Mitzva and a siyum it is effective. Besides Horav Aharon Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it can have the effect of davening at home without a minyan, but at the same time that others are also davening which is preferred.
I just don’t understand, if this Zoom group dose not constitute a minyan, why would it be considered as davening at the same time of a minyan? If ten people daven separately at their home, should I daven with them also?
A. Horav Aharon’s Shlit’a opinion is that although there are not united in one location, it is still an “Eis Rotzon” or a favorable time, since after all ‘Rov Am’ or many are doing the mitzva at that same time.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller, Horav Dovid Pam and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
