The Aruch Hashulchan 234:1 says he should skip ashrei. He doesn't make a distinction between coming right when they start or in the middle. Obviously, you cannot be mafsik during kaddish to say ashrei. (I would have thought to say a few pesukim kedei laamod bitfilla mitoch divrei Torah, but I guess not.) There is no takanah of saying ashrei after Shmona ...

I heard from Rabbi Strasser from Boro Park that it isn't necessary to actually hear the siyum. The person who did the siyum celebrates by throwing a party and invites people to join him. All those that partake in the party are exempt from fasting. In fact, some people mistakenly believe that hearing the siyum is all that's required, and subsequently go home ...

Mourners' kaddish is said after any public recitation of Tanakh (and its close cousin, Rabbis' kaddish, said after public study of Talmud or other Oral Law).

So the minimal requirement is charity. This was explained by one of the poskei hador in the US, R. ...

1) If you are within a very short time you should say it immediately because Zmanim quotes are often rounded lechumra and may be slightly imprecise based on your exact location, elevation, and the outside weather. Plus there are slightly different opinions about how to calculate the time (how much of the sun needs to be above the horizon to be considered ...

Shulchan Aruch OC 52 says to say Baruch she'amar, Ashrei, 2 of the הללו's, yishtabach and berchos kerias shema: אם בא לבית הכנסת ומצא צבור בסוף פסוקי דזמרה אומר ברוך שאמר עד מהולל בתשבחות ואחר כך תהלה לדוד עד מעתה ועד עולם הללויה. ואחר כך הללו את ה' מן השמים עד לבני ישראל עם קרובו הללויה. ואחר כך הללו אל בקדשו עד כל הנשמה תהלל יה. ואחר כך ישתבח ...
