Halacha - hazarat ha-shatz
Submitted by Yitzchak Sheffrin  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: There would appear to be a contradiction in Shulchan Aruch because in OC 55:6 it says that as long as 10 men are present the repetition may be started even if one is davening or sleeping, and the Mishna Berura writes that even more then one would be acceptable as long as at least a majority of 6 are answering. However in OC 124:4 Shulchan Aruch writes that if there are not 10 men listening and answering to chazoras hashatz it is close to a beracha l'vatala. The Poskim give various solutions to resolve the situation, the general consensus is to wait for 9 unless there are significant extenuating circumstances.
