Already well before the outreach movement gained momentum, b’nei Torah moved to out-of-town communities with the berachos of Torah leadership. Each case required its own query, each answer tailor-made to the circumstances of the question asked. Here is not the place to deal with the many chinuch and other questions that arise as a result of living in remote Jewish communities. Each query has to be individually asked. The amount of Torah learning that each person has to do in order to stay strong in his Yiddishkeit, for example, is an individual question. Each person is different. So, too, issues of whether one may miss tefillah b’tzibbur if one does not always get a minyan is not just a local question, but has to do with the long-term spiritual health of the mekarev.
