Anyway, the other thing that was cool about this mincha was that we shared a room with Muslims doing their afternoon prayers, which felt really companionable and nice. And much much better than the way that many interfaith events try to hold multi-faith prayers, which are usually cringey and watered down to nothing.

I've only had a chance to do things like this once or twice, and only with Christians, but it really feels... faith affirming when it's done right.


Does anyone have a source relating to counting women in the absence of men?

There's some stuff about it in Rabbis Tucker and Rosenberg's book that I'm presently reading... I don't think I've yet gotten to anything yet where the ruling is based on women in the absence of men, though there have been some cases where it's based on women counting when there aren't enough men, I think with regards to reading Torah. I'll see if I can dig you up specifics when I have access to the book.
