  • On a fast day, if the chazzan forgets the beracha of “aneinu”, if he did not yet say the Name of HaShem at the conclusion of the beracha of refa’einu, he should go back to aneinu. If he did say that shem haShem, he should continue and say “aneinu” in “shome’ah tefillah”, BUT he should conclude the birchas shome’ah tefillah in its usual way.

 

    • An individual, at Minchah. who forgot “aneinu” and concluded shome’ah tefillah, should continue and say “aneinu” during “Elokeiy, netzor…”. If he does not say it there, either, shemoneh esrei is not repeated.

It is better to daven with a small minyan in a Beis Medrash (where people regularly learn Torah) than with a larger minyan in a Shul (if they don’t learn Torah). This is learned from the passuk “HaShem loves the gates of Zion (gates that learn Torah. see Gemara Berachos 8a and Shulchan Aruch O.C. 90:18 with MB there which explains the derasha) more so than all the dwellings of Yaakov (the Shuls)” (ibid).

Of course, BTYA is best of all!
