Must Vayechulu be said in a Minyan or by Two Jews together?
Dear Rabbi, I became very confused lately when someone said that “ Vayechulu ” at the Friday night davening needs to be said like aidut , which means that two people should say it at the exact same time; then someone said that it should not be said with two people but really you need to say it with ten like kedusha ; then someone said you can even say it with one – just don’t be mechaven for aidut .

Why don’t we blow Shofar Erev Rosh Hashana?
