Halocho #261 - You must come to Minyan

Members of a (small) Jewish community may force each other to come to shul (synagogue) daily so as to ensure there is always a Minyan - a quorum of 10 over-Bar-Mitzvah males - for thrice-daily prayers.

If needed, they may impose fines on those who don't come.

Making a Minyan takes precedence over Torah learning; there's a time to learn and a time to pray.
