In my local shul during mincha/maariv a daf yomi chabura learns out loud during davening in the same beis medrash as the rest of the tzibbur.

Do they have a right to do so? The problem is that I can't concentrate at all and my davening is ruined.

Are there any halachos regarding people learning and devening in the same room?

  • I think there may be a difference if the room is designated as a Bet Midrash vs. a Bet Keneset. Which one is it, in your case?

  • @DanF, it's both, but mostly used as a Bet Keneset.

    Who was there first? (Also, I think Chazal implies in several places that learning is more important than davening - but this does sound like more of an issue of who has the original right to be there...)

    This comment thread appears to be trying to pasken this particular case. I think this is a mistake.
