When we say Krias Shema, the widespread custom (referred to in OC 24 (4) Rema), is to kiss the tzitzis when we say the word, “צִיצִת”.
When we come to the words, עַל צִיצִת הַכָּנָף (which Singer translates as “upon the fringe of each corner”), to kiss at the word צִיצִת interrupts between the words צִיצִת and כָּנָף which belong together. I think it is better to kiss after the word כָּנָף.
The problem with my thought is that in OC 61(20) it says one must avoid run-ins of words where one ends in the letter that begins the next and gives as one example הַכָּנָף פְּתִיל . If we stopped to kiss the tzitzis after the word הַכָּנָף (as I suggest) there would be no need for the Shulchan Oruch to gives us this din.
Can anyone provide evidence either way on my idea please?
