The Gemara in Berachos 12a says that we bow at Baruch and we straighten at Hashem. Nowadays the familiar practice is to bend the knee at Baruch, to bow at Atah, and to straighten at Hashem, as stated in Magen Avraham 113:4. Why did the practice change, and when?
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
Which translates to:
At Baruch one bends one's knees, and bows at Ata, etc.
