Waiting for someone to finish Arvit

  1. If there’s only one person left in shul Davening after Arvit/Maariv at night, one should wait around for that last person so that he isn’t rushed in Davening. [1]
  2. Some are strict to wait for the last person Davening even after Shacharit and Mincha. [2]
  3. In a shul that’s in the fields one must wait for the last person even after Shacharit and Mincha. [3]
  4. However, if the last person Davening is extending his prayers (adding more requests) one doesn’t have to wait for such a person. [4]
  5. If the last person Davening entered so late that he couldn’t finish in time to complete Davening with the tzibbur, one doesn’t have to wait for him. [5]

  5. Talmedei Rabbenu Yonah (Brachot 3a D”H Shnayim) writes that one only has to wait for the person if he came in with enough time to finish with everyone else, however if when he entered he didn’t have time to complete his Davening with the tzibbur, he shows that he doesn’t mind leaving alone. Mishna Brurah 90:48 brings this as Halacha.
