Joseph Shalom Elyashiv, cited in Avnei Yashfe, supra, note 85, footnote 12 therein, and in Adar uFurim, sec. 8, no. 5, par. 2:4 (see Aryeh A. Frimer, Tradition, note 3, supra, footnote 92, for clarification); Halikhot Beita, Petah haBayyit, sec. 24; R. Yehuda Herzl Henkin, Resp. Benei Vanim, II, sec. 7. See also the related comments of: R. Ephraim Oschry, miMa’amakim, IV, sec. 4; R. David Yosef, Halakha Berura, IV, sec. 55, no. 46 and Birur Halakha, note 34; Aryeh A. Frimer, ibid., section G and references cited therein. See also the reviews of R. Raphael Stern, “Tseruf leMinyan meEver liMehitsa,” haMa’ayan, 44:4 (Tamuz 5764), pp. 33-42 – see especially note 26; R. Tsvi Reisman, “Tseruf liTefilla beTsibbur miShnei Evrei Gader,” Tehumin, 27 (5767), pp. 185-192, especially pp. 189-190. We note that Meiri, Rosh haShana 28a, states: “Our women, who pray in synagogue in a section unto themselves, do not fulfill tefilla be-tsibbur, since it requires ten.” However, based upon the analysis of Resp. Benei Vanim, ibid., one may contend that Meiri is referring to a case where the mehitsa reaches the ceiling.
