Does everyone in my family have to accept Shabbos at the same time?
Hi, due to covid-19 my shul is only having an early minyan on Friday night. I’m 13. But my father and the rest of my family wont be able to make it to shul at 7.
Would I be allowed to go to that early minyan and accept Shabbos early even though the rest of my family has not accepted Shabbos and my mother has not lit candles. Does everyone in my family have to accept Shabbos at the same time?
So should I therefore not go to minyan at all or should I just accept shabbos earlier than the rest of my family.
The rest of the family does not need to be mikabel Shabbos.
However it is important to note that if this is the only shul in the town and most frum Jews are present by maariv, your entire family has to be mikabel Shabbos when the minyan says the first borchu, regardless if you are by the minyan or not.
