Halacha - Davening netz alone
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Yes, but only if you daven netz on a regular basis. Otherwise it is better to daven with a minyan.

I stand corrected, it is 58. It is clear from the expression "hazehirim" that the Mishna Berura is not permitting just anyone who find that vasikin happens to fit into his schedule today to dispense with tefilla b'tzibur, one must be a "zahir". While you are correct that he does not specify the qualifications to be classified a "zahir", the Poskim understand it refers to one who davens vasikin on a regular basis, and that would certainly be the most logical reading of the word.

(1) It's 58:1 (2) He only writes "hazehirin". There's no mention of "Rogil". Can't I be "Zahir" occasionally?

The Mishna Berura is in Biur Halacha 48:1 "uMitzva min hamuvchar".

What is the source for limiting solo netz to someone who does it regularly?
