If there is a lot of talking (or other halakhic impropriety) in a synagogue, what are some of the considerations that go into the decision regarding what to do about it?
Here are some ideas of what to do, though there may be more:
- do nothing and continue praying at my synagogue and attempt to set a good example (but risk being distracted in my prayers and c"v be seduced by the negative environment around me into committing the exact same crimes that I am worried about);
- pray by myself at home (but without a minyan, so I miss out on Barchu, Kedushah, Torah reading, Kaddish, et al.);
- be a whistleblower and try to establish a breakaway minyan (but risk being cold-shouldered by the "establishment" or annihilated by an angry mob).
