In my curiosity of possibly attending a Yemenite minyan on Shabbat, I viewed this directory of Yemenite congregations in the U.S.
The last column lists 2 nuscha'ot - Shami and Baladi
As I am a neophyte in this area, can someone explain what these terms mean and highlight or summarize some of the differences in prayers, specifically Shabbat prayers or any other differences?
Specifically, if I were to enter one of these shuls on Shabbat, what idfferences would I notice? I am Ashkenazi Orthodox and daven Nusach Ashkenaz. My Hebrew is fluent. Entering this type of shul is a new experience for me. Would I have an easier time "adjusting" or feeling comfortable / following along in one nusach of the other one?
For the curious, I may try the Ymenite minyan in Boca Raton in a few weeks, as I may be in that area visiting someone.
